    Topic: HVAC Acoustic Strategies for Indoor & Outdoor Applications

    Acoustics is not always considered on every project but it is present on every project. That is not to say that it is an issue on every project but should receive a cursory review to determine if it needs to be addressed. In this discussion we'll look to address a few of the common noise makers on projects. The discussion will begin with a short focus on basic acoustic terminology (e.g. Sound Pressure versus Sound Power, dBA, relative loudness, etc. . . ). We then proceed into practical and feasible solutions for treating air and water-cooled chillers and rooftop units with general rules of thumb reductions and other design input considerations. We will wrap up with a discussion on common specification strategies and why they don't always provide the desired results and ending with best practice specification strategies.
