So last summer my neighbors (and good friends) installed an AC unit between our two houses ... which are very close together. I only wish they had installed it in their back yard instead. In essence this unit is right outside my kitchen/bedroom wall - maybe about 8-10 ft. away. The noise is horrendous ... I can't sleep.
Are these things supposed to be so loud? Are they supposed to run non-stop as this one does?
In the interest of maintaining our friendship, I need advice as to what to suggest to mitigate the noise. I don't believe moving it to the back yard will be an option (they divorced and now it's just her). If he were here, I'd talk to him about it, but he's not.
I'm desperate. I want to make informed suggestions to her. Any ideas?
And no, I don't know if they got a permit, I don't know if it's against code ... it's a moot point now and not much to be done for it, as I wouldn't want to cause trouble.
