In-Wall Air Conditioner
« on: May 23, 2012, 02:25:19 AM »
We are hearing construction noise from across the street in our rental apartment in NYC. A few months ago, we placed some plexiglass windows up (using the kit you sold us) and that has helped significantly, however, now we are getting noise leaking through the in-wall air conditioner.

I read your info page and it recommends creating a shield. I can't do this on the outside, so I'd have to do this inside. How would that work -- would I just place this on top of the vent? Will this be sufficient or do I also need to soundproof the rest of the unit? Would placing foam on the inside cover of the unit help? Would that cause any problems when the heat is on?

Is there anything else you'd recommend?

Thanks!

You can build a soundproof cover, but it will not be able to be used while the unit is being used.
Give me a call on Tuesday so I can better explain how to accomplish this.
