Air Condintioning Unit
« on: April 26, 2006, 04:16:13 AM »
I just a got a loft with concrete floor and little furniture so the sound carries well.  The A/C unit is just a monster (the maintenance guy said its extra loud because I have no ventilation).

So the question is, what can I do about it?  Can I put some MLV over the front cover?  Can I build a false wall over the front or something?  Of course it still has to suck in air so I cannot seal it.  Thoughts?

Hi hozer2k,

There's an excellent discussion of solving air conditioner sound problems at

If you want to apply something directly to the unit to absorb and block sound use the SSP Mat - a closed cell, cross linked, vinyl nitrile acoustic foam.  Use the thickest you can afford.  See the first product listed at
