Controlling noise in an environment is just as important as the conditioning of the air. Many components are factory tested under ideal conditions for sound & vibration that may be totally different from their actual installed environments. HVAC systems sometimes produce unnecessary noises and vibrations that can make their way to occupied spaces. A noisy, vibrating environment can distract occupants, damage building materials and also lead to early component failure within the system. Sound and vibration testing involves checking noise sources (ie: motors, fans, airflow and pumps) to make sure their output is within acceptable noise and vibration limits.
Mechanical Testing Inc. can troubleshoot noise and vibration problems. We are able to pinpoint the problem source and recommend corrective action. Proper sound and vibration testing will provide comfort for occupants, lower costs and enhance building performance.
