Thank you. Useful video. Everything Graham says makes sense. Our ASHP, nearly silent during the warmth of September, is quite ‘loud’ during these winter months when full on and starting up. It’s not, in my view, as noisy as the external oil boiler belonging to a neighbour down the road.

The noise level doesn’t bother us at all but we are far enough away from others that most don’t even know we have a heat pump. The pump is located outside a bathroom window. When the window is shut you can’t hear it at all.
My subjective view is that even if we were closer to our neighbours it would not bother them because they are inside with windows shut during the winter months.

I am sorry, but this is the most unprofessional response possible! If people hate their neighbours, there are ways for them to express their hatred other than ‘moaning about their ASHPs”! The noise of the ASHPs is a serious matter which so far has been ignored by the authorities (because they want to reach their carbon target in any way possible) and the production companies (because they only think of their pockets).
