The City of Vancouver’s current direction towards greater energy efficiency standards, combined with continuous advancements in green energy technology, will likely result in the greater adoption of air- source heat pumps as an alternative source of space conditioning and domestic hot water production. As Vancouver continues to densify, the competition for suitable mechanical space will become even more limited and the possibility for noise conflicts even greater. This research project therefore explores some of these challenges and presents potential solutions to these issues.
