How loud are portable air conditioners? Air conditioners sometimes have a reputation for being noisy, but there are plenty of units that are far less loud than you might imagine. While some units pass 60 decibels—the sound level of a busy office—many like this Honeywell model produce as little as 52 decibels, the same sound level as a normal conversation. Check out the diagram below for some more decibel equivalences to keep in mind while you’re shopping for a portable air conditioner.

How can I make my portable AC more quiet? If you’re using your portable air conditioner and you find yourself wishing your environment were a little less noisy, first try placing the unit on a level floor. If you’ve made sure the floor beneath the unit is flat but you’d still like to reduce the sound, you can put a small, low-pile rug underneath. Just make sure you’re not surrounding the portable AC with anything too thick!
