HVAC-unit noise detection

In cities a common noise complaint is caused by radiating noise from heating, ventilation and air conditioning units. HVAC-unit noise detection with the Sorama  sound camera can help cities to reduce environmental noise. When the units are installed in close proximity to each other, it can be challenging to find the specific unit creating noise.

Using sound imaging, the sound camera analyses, detects and localizes the noise while visualizing the sound source directly on the 7-inch touch screen.

HVAC-units noise detection

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning units (HVAC) are a common sight in residential and commercial areas. Even though they bring comfort for those inside the building, they also produce environmental noise by radiating low frequency noise.

The units are often installed in close proximity of each other, especially in busy residential and commercial areas, making it difficult to identify which units is causing noise complaints from neighboring residents.

Using HVAC-units noise detection on the Sorama CAM iV64 the user can easily identify the relevant unit. Just turn on the sound camera, direct the sensor head towards the area where the noise is coming from and spot the source in the real-time sound map displayed on the 7-inch touch screen.

Once the units is detected the owner can be contacted for repair or maintenance. Timely notification can even prevent high replacement cost.
