Silent Central Air Conditioner Review 2018Last Updated: December 1, 2018
If you looking for a quality silent central air conditioner system for your home, the sheer range of choice on the market is both impressive and technically daunting to decide on. Our team assessed a range of silent central air conditioner units and compiled this guide to the best products.
Power and energy efficiency—especially speed of cooling—are probably the most crucial factors when you’re choosing an air conditioner system for your home. However, since we’re dealing with a person’s personal space in the home, these are not the only factors to be considered. When considering the silent central air conditioner, it’s important to remember that While all central air conditioners will produce sound, the best ones would never be guilty of anything as annoying as noise. The quietest ones on the market should barely be noticeable, and there are some machines listed here from LG and the ductless split technology advanced by GREE Electric Appliances Inc, that are no louder than the ticking of a wall-clock.
Top Silent Central Air Conditioner Units 2018
Our team looked at some of the best central air conditioner appliances on the market to compile this overview of the best silent central air conditioner units available today.
It is difficult to imagine how anything significantly quieter exists in the sphere of silent air conditioner technology as the LS120HSV4 from the LG company. This is air conditioning as loud as most people would like it in an ideal world.
2. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – LG LS090HSV4
Like its LS120HSV4 running mate at number 1 on our list, the LS090HSV4 is another fantastic silent central air conditioner solution for your home, with an operational noise level that is no louder than the 20dBA emitted by a ticking wall clock.
3. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – GREE Sapphire 18HP 230V
While this is not the quietest machine in the Sapphire series developed by the ductless split AC systems developed by GREE (that distinction belongs to the SAP09HP230V1A which produces just 19-45 dBA), the 18HP 230V Sapphire Series model operates in a very respectable range of 34-51dBA indoors.
4. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – GREE Crown+ 9HP 230V
This is another silent centre air conditioner product from GREE that can hardly be ignored, as it operates in a range of just 22-41dBA. This is another of the products that the AC firm has proudly flagged as whisper-quiet, and really, it’s difficult to take issue with the claim.
5. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – GREE Terra 9HP 230V
GREE’s ductless mini-split systems are among the quietest cooling and heating solutions, and this is the quietest operator in the company’s Terra series, a 9HP 230V model that murmurs along at an unobtrusive 24-42dBA. Once again, this is not a range that is going to intrude on the activities of an average household.
6. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – GREE Vireo+ 12HP 230V
Again, this is not the quietest air conditioner in GREE’s Vireo+ range. But the 12HP 230V ductless split system still functions in the noise range between 26 and 43 dBA.
7. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – GREE Livo+ 9HP 230V
The 9HP 230V edition in this wall-mount mini split air conditioner system is just 28-43dBA. GREE is the world’s largest manufacturer of residential air conditioners and is particularly noted for its R&D. The organisation employs more than 5,000 engineers in 530 labs worldwide, with approximately 70,000 employees spread across nine production bases.
8. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – Goodman Air Conditioner
Moving up into another dBA bracket, the Goodman GSX160361 generates just 73 dBa of noise, making it an ideal generator for home use, or in any environment where noise levels can really make a difference, such as a small office for example. It’s also compact and highly energy-efficient, able to powerfully cool medium to larger rooms, with its chlorine0-free liquid refrigerant keeping the atmosphere free of any ozone-damaging elements. The unit’s steel cabinet comes with the unique Goodman Sound Control Top design, which minimises sound.
9. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – Bryant Air Conditioner
Only slightly louder than the Goodman GSX160361 comes the Bryant Legacy 4-Ton, a powerful unit that emits 75 dBA during operation. Like the Goodman, this is another of the most highly energy-efficient air conditioner models on the market. It has a two-ton condensing unit and is Energy Star rated, and uses 410-A refrigerant. The noise insulation of the unit is one of its most striking features. This machine has a manufacturer’s warranty that is valid when registered to the homeowner, and installed by a licensed HVAC professional.
10. Silent Central Air Conditioner Review – Rheem Air Conditioner
This Rheem unit is the outdoor condenser only, but as can be seen from the data table above, it’s bound to impress if you are living in a built-up residential area where you like to have a peaceful garden and don’t want noise to annoy your neighbours. Rheem’s outdoor condenser will provide cooling only, and as part of a complete split system (which will also include an indoor air handler, blower or gas furnace component), will cool your house or a small office like a dream
