Several studies have presented the effects of environmental noise on communities, focusing attention on sleep time events. The noise introduced into a dwelling is mostly evaluated using the A-weighted sound pressure level (LAeq) as the only parameter to determine the perceived disturbance. Nevertheless, if noise is produced by activities or sources characterised by a low frequency contribution, the measurement of LAeq underestimates the real disturbance, in particular during sleep time. The aim of this contribution is to analyse the low frequency disturbance phenomenon into technical and scientific literature and to investigate if any possible objective method is available in order to assess noise disturbance inside dwellings.
