The Company will handle noise-related complaints if they are due to rectifiable faults. But if they are due to the Equipment’s inherent characteristics, the Company may decline to handle such complaints.
The Company will make the final decision on whether the noise is due to underlying fault or the Equipment’s inherent characteristics.
