My neighboors have a constant noise in their appartement because of us. They are pretty unhappy about it. They got used to it though.

As any married man will tell you, you just do.
 
double glazing? Turn it off and put up with the heat? Go on a murderous rampage....although I hear prison can be pretty noisy too.

That's really annoying! :mad:

You could try going to court …it's a common-law nuisance, and it's probably a breach of your lease also (if it's in your building).

If you're a student, your student union lawyer might be able to help you …

How would you construe an air conditioner hum as a breach of lease? All air conditioners make noise when running, so unless you'd rather have a place with no A/C, you learn to put up with it. When it's a truly constant noise, you'll eventually tune it out. And, if it isn't coming from YOUR building, even less one can do about it...that would be like complaining to your landlord about the traffic on the street outside your apartment...the landlord has no control over that. If you can't get used to it, move when your lease is up (better yet, pay attention to these things when looking at new places).

You can do things to reduce noise in your apartment...for example, if you have hardwood floors, put down a rug so there's less echo.

Of course, noisy neighbors (like humanino) are another thing, and that IS something one can complain to the landlord about, and would be reason for the landlord to evict the neighbors if it's excessive.

Yes, but some air conditioners make more noise than others. There has to be a limit.

If it's functioning properly, it's fine. If it was rattling and banging and pumping out hot air, then there's a problem. The worst are usually the window units...if the noise bothers you, turn it off.
