On Monday our contractor begins to build out the mechanical room for a renovation of our home. The major item located in the room is a Carrier Infinty 80 (58CVA) furnace.
Because of the home's layout, this room adjoins the dining and living rooms. We've taken great pains to keep the ducts quiet, but the one thing I'm still uncertain about is how aggressive should we should be in "noise insulation" of the mechanical room. Right now the only thing we're doing is installing Owens Corning QuietZone fiberglass batts in the walls. I've also considered double sheetrock or resilent channels, but our HVAC contractor says that the unit is so quiet that this in unnecessary.
Anyone else have any thoughts? Is the unit really that quiet?
