How quiet is 54 decibels?
I have an almost 9 year old Kenmore elite dishwasher which will need to be replaced soon. It was considered to be "ultra-quiet", but I can't find a decibel rating for it anywhere. My kitchen is open to the family room, so quiet is a very important consideration. When the dishwasher is running, I can hear it, but I don't have to raise my voice or turn up the volume on the tv.
The replacements I have been looking at are rated from 52 to 54 decibels. I know that 52 is considerably quieter than 54, but was wondering if anyone can give me an example of how loud 54 is.
