My home needs a new HVAC system. I've gotten a few quotes and narrowed down my options to three companies I trust to do a great job.
I'm concerned about noise level, mostly compressor noise. I do audio production on the same side of the house as the A/C equipment (unavoidable I'm afraid), so I want a VERY quiet system. Data on this seems hard to find and mostly useless when it comes to comparing different brands.
So I'd just like to get a subjective opinion on how these brands compare in terms of noise level:
Which brand(s) are the quietest? What's the "sweet spot" when it comes to choosing a model within each brand? Anything noteworthy about the noise they make? (e.g. "rumble" vs "wind noise" vs "hum/whine"...)
Are these silly questions?
