Saw an article in FMCA magazine about an RV A/C silencer from Wacko Products. It replaces existing filter input housing with a " improved design" that is supposed to reduce noise and provide better filtration. Cost $189. Has anyone tried this? Does it work well enough to justify the money?

You will see things advertised now and then to quiet do the air conditioners and non of them work very well. Most of the noise is sound coming through the roof.

It appears to be a legitimate product, although I can't say how effective it is.

Does seem to be an actual company....but who would name their company, "Wacko?"

Might suggest something like, "WhisperO," for an AC silencer...

Scroll down their web page:

"One hot evening sitting around the campfire with some of my good friends the idea was tossed around of opening up a company. My first words were who would buy this crazy (WackO) stuff from me. The comments around the fire were why wouldn’t they."

Well that's a lot of money for something you can do yourself, my ducted a/c units also made a lot of noise at the return vents on the units, removed the thin cheap foam filter and bought a thick charcoal filter at Lowes that made the unit a lot quieter and filters better and only cost about $10.00, you do have to cut the filters down to fit..

The product on that link says it makes the Coleman A/C {Reduce sound levels 3-6 decibels (dB)}


I think I got the same reduction in sound level or more with a thicker a/c charcoal filter that only cost $10.00 for 2 a/c units..

I wish they would make something to silence the furnace too.

x2. Even if my last name was Wacko I would chose a different name for the product.
Wacko invites ridicule. JMO
