Joule Samsung Gen6 - Fierce Racket

    Hi all,

    New build and getting used to our Joule Samsung Gen6 based Air source heatpump system.

    The problem is that the tank unit and main control system is in the upstairs horpress which shares a wall with the master bedroom.

    The system has literally woken me up as it kicks in to maintain house temp during the night. I'm shocked at how loud it is, and I wish the unit was downstairs instead. It's such a sudden onset.

    I can deal with some of the low frequency issues by dampening the metal panels which surround the unit, but the major source of noise is the pump inside the unit.

    I'm sure the outlet pipe is pinned somewhere behind the walls, but the builder has surrounded all the pipes in plaster as they enter the wall, which sends the vibration into the plaster board itself. I don't think I have enough pipe visible to dampen it down.

    The metal panels and walls now act as a bit of a resonator, the wall more so. I'm not going to be able to decouple the unit entirely, but I would like to try something.

    Does anyone have any ideas or experience with the same? Could the pump flow rate be lessened? Replace the pump?
