Executive Summary

In the tranquil outskirts of Vienna, we tackled a noise problem for our client, addressing excessive heat pump unit noise disturbing a neighbour. We reduced noise levels by 20 dB(A), maintaining legal compliance while enhancing living conditions. The owner and architect client sought our expertise to overcome this challenge.

Scope of Work

  • Site visit and measurements
  • Acoustic modelling of the existing conditions
  • Proposal for a noise reduction solution targeting a decrease of at least 20 dB(A)
  • Visual representation of the proposed solution using software to provide the client with a preview of the changes

Challenge

The primary challenge was reducing noise emissions from the heat pump unit while ensuring adequate airflow. The noise levels had exceeded legal limits, causing disturbances to nearby residents.

Solution

To address the problem, we implemented the following solutions:

  • Covering the "cave" under the staircase with mineral wool for sound absorption
  • Installing two sound-absorbing louvres at the air outlet and intake points
  • Mounting the louvres on anti-vibration pads to account for small vibrations from the unit's foundation

We used:

  • Sound-Absorbing Louvres
  • Anti-vibration Pads

Result

The implemented solutions successfully reduced noise levels by 20 dB(A), ensuring compliance with legal requirements and greatly improving the living conditions for neighbouring properties. The client was impressed not only by the effective soundproofing but also by the aesthetically pleasing design of the solution.

This project underlines the importance of customised acoustic solutions in creating functional and comfortable living spaces. Effective soundproofing enhances the auditory environment and improves the quality of life for residents. For future projects, tailored acoustic solutions will be key to achieving optimal results.
