A SPANISH couple are complaining they have not been able to get a decent night’s sleep for years as a result of noise from two air conditioning units next door to their Orihuela home. Rafael Cerezo and his wife have spent the past week at the doors of Orihuela Town Hall demanding action over the noise they claim air conditioning units of the Museo de la Muralla makes.
The couple blame Culture Councillor Pepa Ferrando for failing to take appropriate action.
According to Cerezo, when they first complained about the noise, the units were switched off at night. This was a decade ago, and now they say these are left switched on in the evenings “depending on the amount of humidity,” he says.
“The continuous noise in unbearable,” Cerezo told Informacion newspaper, claiming his wife has even suffered anxiety attacks.
He also claims that when he lodged a complaint at the Local Police station he was told “they did not have the necessary equipment to measure the sound” to establish whether noice regulations were being broken.
