Unit for comparison dBA (A weighted decibel). A logarithmic unit used to measure sound pressure level as percived by the human ear. The higher the dBA number the louder is the sound.
When it comes to heatpump dBA measurements, the higher the fan speed setting, the higher the dBA which is why there is a min/max dBA number. A higher kW heatpump. We will compare the 2.5kW heatpump across brands.
