I live in a first-floor condominium in a converted elementary school building. Each condo unit has a HVAC unit in a closet within the unit. The compressors for the units are apparently located on the roof of the condo. At night, my wife and I are able to hear a pulsing low-pitched buzzing/vibration coming from the walls in our condo unit. After consulting with an HVAC technician, he said we are hearing the noise of the compressor of the HVAC unit in the condominium above us.
Is this possible? The compressor is apparently located on the roof- is it possible that noise from the compressor could/would be traveling through the roof, through the walls of the unit above us, and into our unit's walls?
The technician said that what we are hearing is 'normal' compressor noise...though to my mind, while the noise from the neighbor's compressor might be normal, its travelling into the walls of our condo unit doesn't strike me as particularly normal or appropriate.
Any advice as to possible solutions, recommendations, etc. would be appreciated.
