Sound Proofing HVAC Equipment
« on: September 28, 2005, 08:39:49 PM »
Does anyone have a suggestion or an idea for sound proofing outdoor HVAC equipment? Currently we have approx. 25 tons of equipment placed inside of a wooden fence enclosure with a wooden trellis on top.

Our idea is to line the fence with some sort of sound absorbing material but we are having trouble finding one that works for exterior applications.

While these units are not putting out a tremendous amount of noise the idea is to get it low enough that people passing them on the sidewalk, which the sit directly next to, do not notice a change above the ambient sound of the street.

Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I recently discovered your posted soundproofing dilemma (from last September!). We have the same problem (HVAC located not too far from our deck), and I was wondering if you ever figured out a good solution.

hi hoek,

We have great success using 2" thick SSP Mat.  For pricing see first product discussed at http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/prices.html  After the material is glued to the wooden fence, paint it with a high quality water-based latex paint to protect from UV.
