We've taken measurements of noise at heat pumps installed in homes. There is clear evidence that acoustics play little part in the ways heat pumps are usually installed in buildings. Unsurprisingly, this creates problems and complaints - sometimes worse. However, there are ways to mitigate noise impacts from heat pumps. We'll tell you how.
