We have two Mermaid units on our 1997 Caliber 40lrc. One in the aft cabin to cool/heat that and the Nav station and one in the salon to cool/heat the salon. We bought the boat in 8/2010 and it came with these units. We used the AC a couple of times but used the heat extensively from October to almost Christmas while living aboard. We now heat with a Hurrican H2 hydronic heater I installed.

The majority of the noise is from the fan units. It never kept us up at night and we didn't have to turn up the stereo or TV when it came on. I spoke to Mermaid about some duct parts and they were very helpful and friendly.

That is about all I can tell you.
