The Huangs, who are forty and have three children, say that it is only two meters from their living room and four meters from their bedroom.
They told it Daily telegram it sounds like & # 39; an aircraft engine mixed with a waste press & # 39 ;.
According to New South Wales rules, an air conditioner that can be heard by neighbors must be switched off between 10 p.m. and 7 p.m.
But the Huangs say that the 52-year-old grandmother Dr. Nazaran leaves it & # 39; late at night so that they can no longer sleep.

The police have been & # 39; at least ten times & # 39; called to her house to tell her to turn it off.
Dr. Narazan says that sometimes she forgets to turn it off and that the police looms up in the middle of the night at her home, destroying her reputation as a family doctor.
& # 39; People must think we are drug dealers & # 39 ;, she told the Telegraph.
Parramatta employees in the Council are already close by to tackle the dispute that has been going on for more than two years.
But the municipality and the NSW Environment and Protection Authority both say that the system is not loud enough to be a nuisance.
A spokesperson for the Parramatta Council said: & # 39; The Council has provided all reasonable services regarding the matter and will not take any further action. & # 39;
A spokesperson for the NSW police said: "With these complaints, police statements are diverted from more serious matters."
The Huangs will tell their story about A Current Affair on Friday evening.
What are the noise standards for air conditioning units?
Air conditioners must not operate at a noise level that is higher than 5 decibels above the ambient noise level of the environment measured at any limit during peak hours.
Or, during off-peak hours, at a noise level that can be heard in the habitable rooms of adjoining houses.
