Are you saying they want carpet put down on areas where there is a wooden floor only and you don't wish to do this?
There is likely nothing you can do at this point unless you can prove that the noise is not coming from you.
The Board is required to enforce the by-laws and as well must take steps t ensure that each owner has peaceful enjoyment of the premises and each owner must always be sure not to interfere with another owner's right to peaceful enjoyment of their homes so if the carpeting is necessary so that the unit owner below has peaceful enjoyment of their home then you will have to put in the carpeting.
I am sorry this is not the answer you were hoping for.
Yes it does make a difference.
You should ask to be able to speak to the board directly and have your case heard. You should say that the allegations are false and that you have proof that some of them are blatantly false and cite the example of when you were at the hospital and no one was even home and they blamed you for loud bang. They are blaming you for noises that they are hearing everywhere or else they are actually just making this up but either way you are not making those noises.
I suggest that your next step be to consult with a lawyer face to face and have the lawyer send the board and Letter essentially threatening a lawsuit if they don't stop harassing you and indicating that they are unfair and that you will not be putting in the carpet because of false allegations made by a neighbor.
