I have travelled a little in the Caribbean- Jamaica, grenada, st vincent , mexico , dominican republic etc and all the AC units - like on this trip in the DR, are all very quiet- have 4 fan speeds, - directional air vents, digital temp setting by degree, louvers that also move back andd forth by themselves- with a remote control, .
The Ac units in our USA hotels are all really loud, one speed fan usually no louver control.
What causes this??
Last week in the poor Dominican republic they has Klimeaire (who makes those?) room units, with suitcase size condensers on the hotel roof . Nice units.
who designs and specs "our" USA noisy dumb units!!!??
