Exhaust Fan Noise

Noise from exhaust fans and other mechanical systems can often go unnoticed if they are located away from residential or commercial properties. This particular fan is located inside of a parking garage. Nevertheless, when this type of equipment is located close to property lines or located close to a usable space such as a conference room or classroom, the noise can be a nuisance and possibly detrimental to speech intelligibility. It is important for designers and engineers to contemplate how mechanical systems may affect the nearby occupied spaces. It is also important to check local zoning codes to make sure that noise levels fall beneath environmental limits. BABICHacoustics provides the appropriate analyses to verify that the appropriate noise criteria can be met.
