Ask yourself, how loud is your furnace when compared to other models?
For many people, having a furnace that operates quietly is just as important as one that operates efficiently. No one wants a furnace that works well but sounds like an 18-wheeler when it starts up in the middle of the night. Could you imagine dealing with that night after night? We sure couldn’t.
At this point, you might be asking yourself, “so what is the quietest furnace?” That’s actually a really great question. In a side-by-side comparison, brands like Carrier, Goodman, Lennox, Rheem, Trane, and York are all put to the test.
When conducting this test, the various furnaces were put in a partially finished basement with concrete walls and some metal shelves for holding various items. If you’re like most people, this probably sounds a lot like the furnace room in your house.
To be fair and unbiased with all of the furnace models, the sound measurements were all taken with the microphone directed toward the center of the furnace. For this test, the level of sound was measured in decibels and taken at a distance of three feet in front of the furnace and at a height of 43 inches above the floor.
