Are Air Source Heat Pumps Noisy?

Tuesday 3rd May 2022

Devices which transfer available heat from the air surrounding a property are called heat pumps. An efficient pump will increase the temperature of this air to make it a useful source of energy for a home or property. All heating products make some sort of noise, but heat pumps are usually quieter than fossil fuel boilers.

Most Modern Heat Pumps Are Not Noisy
Heat pumps are issued in a wide range of sizes and shapes, which can ultimately have an impact on how noisy they are. Luckily, there are numerous government guidelines in place, which now mean that many modern air source heat pumps are much quieter than the older models.

What Might an Air Source Heat Pump Sound Like?
Depending on the type of installation, you can expect different sounds for different air source heat pumps. However, the most common sound is much like a very low whirring if they're working as they should be.

Your heat pump may make a louder, or more aggressive noise if there is a malfunction with the system. In this case, you should seek out advice from a professional heating engineer in your local area.

Mitsubishi Electric's Ecodan Ultra Quiet Heat Pump is the market leading low noise level heat pump which eliminate the need for planning permission and maximises installation options.
