Some heating, ventilation, and air condition (HVAC) systems produce a significant amount of noise. Such systems can have a fan that is active when heating or air conditioning is occurring to circulate air. Noise generated by such a fan can be disruptive, especially if one or more nearby persons are participating in a noise-sensitive activity, such as watching television or talking. Embodiments are focused on determining when such noise-sensitive events are occurring or are likely to occur and adjusting control of an HVAC system to decrease or eliminate the sound or noise generated by the HVAC system while the noise-sensitive event is in progress.
