Does it seem like your air conditioner is making a lot of noise? Would you like to know the reasons why your air conditioner is noisy?
If you notice that your air conditioner is making an unusual noise, it is definitely a cause for concern. There are several reasons your air conditioning unit might be making this noise. You must take steps to find out what the problem is (where the noise is coming from) and fix it right away.
We have listed the most common reasons why your air conditioner is noisy below…
- Problems with the fan:
If you hear a squeaking noise, it is probably the fan. After you use your air conditioner for a while the lubricant used to keep it rotating smoothly will gradually vanish. When this happens the fan will begin making a squeaking or squealing noise. This can be easily fixed by lubricating the fan again. You can prevent this from happening in the future by regularly scheduling an AC tune-up on your air conditioning unit.
- Loose parts:
If the noise you are hearing is a type of rattling then it could be a clear sign that some part(s) is loose. Exterior panels, interior panels, AC ducts, fans, etc. are some of the parts that can make a rattling noise when loose. Some parts like the AC ducts might also make a hissing noise when lose. If you encounter any of these noises, be sure to schedule an appointment with your local AC Repairman.
- Refrigerant leak:
Hissing noises can also be made when the refrigerant leaks. You need to call Thornton Heating Services to get the leak fixed right away as a hissing noise indicates a very serious leak.
- Malfunctioning compressor:
The compressor is usually the noisiest part of the air conditioner and sometimes when it malfunctions it creates a very unusual sound and can become noisier than usual. When this happens you either need to repair it or replace it. Call Thornton and schedule an appointment to get an experts advice and fix the problem.
If your air conditioner is noisy, these may be the reasons why.
To make sure the parts are fixed correctly, it is necessary for you to call the experts at Thornton and schedule an appointment.
