You know what’s annoying? Noise. Loud, distracting, bothersome, noise. Especially if you are trying to sleep, and all you can hear is the WISHH WASHHH WHOOOSH of your dishwasher. It may be great time management to have your dishes run overnight, but it can also be quite a rude awakening, if you can even manage to fall asleep in the first place.
Well, that used to be the case at least. With Bosch dishwashers, say goodbye to noisy wash cycles. Bosch is THE quietest dishwasher brand in Canada. And sure, I can say that, but unless I back it up, what does that really mean?
It’s time to get the science out to explain. Grab those microscopes and lab coats, because this is going to get real.
All That Blah Blah Blah
Bosch dishwashers are 38 dBA loud. How does that compare to other things? Let’s take a look. Conversation is everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Surely a Bosch dishwasher must be louder than that, right?
Nope. Conversational speech comes in at 60 dBA. That’s louder than the dishwasher you could have in your kitchen right this very second. If you don’t have a problem falling asleep with people talking in the other room, you’ll have no problem drifting soundly off to sleep with your Bosch Dishwasher running. In fact, it might be so quiet you could even forget that you started it in the first place!
Take a second. Think of the quietest, most relaxing, peaceful scene you can think of. Focus on that a minute. Focus on the sounds and sights in your happy place. Maybe it’s in a green grassy valley, with a nice little stream running through it. Hear that peaceful, light noise of the brook as it babbles on by? It’s quite a pleasant sound, isn’t it?
It is. It’s also not that loud of a sound. There’s no way that a Bosch dishwasher is quieter than that.
Wrong again! A babbling brook is 40 dBA, which is still more than the 38 dBA Bosh dishwasher. You could place your dishwasher smack dab in the middle of your happy field, and the brook would be louder than it. Now that’s impressive!
This one is just for fun. A howitzer cannon? That’s a whopping 175 dBA. Yeah. Dishwashers are much, much quieter than that. At least it is if it’s a Bosch.
Other Odds and Ends
We’ve already looked at a bunch of things that are louder than an amazing Bosch dishwasher. But we haven’t looked at other appliances yet, so it’s fair to say we haven’t been comparing apples to apples. Well, let’s do just that.
Computer? 40 dBA. Fridge? 50 dBA. Vacuum? 75 dBA. Toilet flushing? 75 dBA as well. All of your household appliances are louder.
How loud is a whisper? Try 30 dBA. That means that if you are whispering right now as you read this at your desk, that noise is only just a LITTLE BIT softer than a Bosch dishwasher. How awesome is that?!?
In other words, if a Bosch dishwasher was a ninja, it would be the stealthiest and sneakiest ninja of all time.
So, what are you waiting for? Stop by today and get a new Bosch dishwasher, and say goodbye to that old loud noisemaker you used to call a washing machine. The quiet life is where it’s at!
