Silent Spell costs 1 action, but allows you to waive the spell's verbal component. Does waiving the verbal component reduce the spell's action cost by 1, thus producing no net change in the number of actions to cast the spell?

No. There is no rule that ties the action cost of Cast a Spell to the components of the spell.
