White Paper: Heat Pumps and Sound


Acoustic is becoming more and more of a concern for the heat pump industry. While industrial solutions to abate sound levels are being explored, other challenges related to the subjective perception of noise are still to be addressed. The complexity of sound issues requires a comprehensive approach that goes beyond technical solution and includes communication, training and legal actions 

Thanks to the impulse of some EHPA’s members, the association held a workshop on sound issues, on 1st October 2019, at the Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna. The Workshop provided a platform for manufacturers to discuss sound emissions from heat pumps and the answers needed for the public. Participants were also invited to brainstorm on potential actions to tackle sound-related issues.
