In Response To: Re: Which blower? (SVP Neon Equipment)

The manufacturer will be able to give you a decible level.
You can quiet the blower down by running your intake from outside and exhaust (if you use a pressure relief valve). Smaller blowers will slow themselves down when there is back pressure. Anything larger than a 92CFM will require a pressure relief valve.
You can also build a U shaped cover for the blower with plywood and ceiling tiles. Leave the front and back open to allow air to flow. Regens emitt the noise from the sides and top of the motor.
