The Welsh Government led the way in commissioning research into the question of whether noise issues may constrain the roll-out of ASHPS, which has been followed by a larger study for DESNZ. There is also public concern about noise from ASHPs, which may be installed under permitted development rights if is provided under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. This includes a noise calculation (MCS 020), to limit the noise impact at the neighbours’ property.
This presentation will dig a little deeper into how an ASHP works, the types of ASHPs available, sound power data that manufacturers must present, the prevalence of noise complaints and the acoustic features that give rise to those complaints, and the difficulties facing consumers who seek a quiet ASHP. While the decarbonisation of residential heating is an essential strand of the government’s policy to achieve NetZero, noise constraints may make this journey more problematic.
In-person meeting: booking is essential as places are limited
The event is free to attend for members of the IOA, students and the public; but places are limited for the in-person meeting so registration is essential. The reminder and meeting details will be sent to those who have registered about a week prior to the event. We will also ask those who are unable to attend to de-register so that those who are on a waiting list can take their places. The places will be allocated on the first come base.
To register for the event (both in-person and online), follow this link: https://www.cpdtag.com/app.php?event=F9E3C047012C759DA6A83E6C54F583E
