Air Handling Units

The Environment Team frequently receives complaints both of odour and noise nuisance associated with the location of air handling equipment.

Where a planning application involves the provision of air handling or moving equipment controls can be put in place with the aim to prevent problems arising in the first place.

Officers will be pleased to provide advice both for those proposing to install air handling equipment, and also for anybody suffering a nuisance from a current location.

Odours can be controlled by either extending or re-routing the extract flue, filtration or other treatment of the exhaust fumes.

Noise nuisance can similarly be resolved by the re-routing or insulation of the ducting, replacing internal parts, or baffling the extract system in some way.
