How Noisy is an Air Source Heat Pump?

How Noisy is an Air Source Heat Pump?

In my latest video, which you can find below, I take a look at how noisy an Air Source Heat Pump really is. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about this, so I wanted to set the record straight.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, air source heat pumps are generally considered to be quieter than traditional heating systems. In fact, they typically produce around 40-45 decibels of sound, which is about the same level as a refrigerator. However, it’s important to note that the noise level can vary depending on the specific model of heat pump, as well as how it’s installed. So, is this the case with my own ASHP?
In the video, I measure the noise level of a popular air source heat pump model (Comfortline which I have on my own tub) at different outputs and temperatures. I also discuss some of the factors that can affect the noise level of an air source heat pump, such as the location of the outdoor unit and the type of property.

What is the difference between the Onda and the Comfortline Air Source Heat pumps?

Everyone under the sun seems to be selling a model now and more and more brands are popping up every day. I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of most of the ones I get asked about!

I’ve tried on my website to keep the range that I offer for sale to a minimum. Minimum being that I offer a model or range to suite everyone and everyone’s budget or requirements.

In this blog post, I will take a look at the difference between the Onda range of Air Source Heat Pumps and the Comfortline Range.
