Air Conditioner Sounds


Does it seem like your air conditioner is making a lot of noise? Would you like to know why your air conditioner is noisy?

If you notice that your air conditioner is making a strange noise, it can be a cause for concern. There are many reasons your air conditioning unit might be making this noise. You must find out what the problem is and where it is coming from. Make sure to fix it right away.

We have listed the most common reasons why your air conditioner is noisy below.

  1. Problems with the fan:
If you hear a squeaking noise, it is often from the fan. After you use your air conditioner for a while, the lubricant used to keep it rotating will vanish. When this happens the fan will make a squeaking or squealing noise. You can fix this by lubricating the fan again. Prevent this from happening in the future by scheduling regular AC tune-ups on your unit.
  1. Loose parts:
If the noise you are hearing is a type of rattling then it could be a clear sign that some parts are loose. Exterior and interior panels, AC ducts, and fans are some parts that make a rattling noise when loose. Some parts like the AC ducts might also make a hissing noise when loose. If you hear any of these noises, schedule an appointment with your local AC Repairman.
  1. Refrigerant leak:
Refrigerant leaks can also cause a hissing sound. You need to call Thornton Heating Services to get the leak fixed right away. A hissing noise is a sign that there is a very serious leak.
  1. Malfunctioning compressor:
The compressor is often the noisiest part of the air conditioner. When it malfunctions, it can create a very unusual sound. This can make it 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.
