Is Your AC Unit Making A Strange Noise?

There are a number of noises we’d all rather avoid when it comes to the machines that help power our homes comfortably. An off-putting sound resonating from your AC unit might be an indication that something is not quite right. If you hear any of these types of sounds, it would be a good idea to call our team to schedule a check-up for your AC system.Man looking through instructions

Whistling Noises

Typically, a whistle coming from your air conditioning unit tends to indicate that something in the system is preventing the proper amount of air from flowing through as it is meant to. A technician will be able to help you to discover what precisely is causing this sort of blockage. If the whistle is higher pitched and alarming, a refrigerant leak is probable, and you should waste no time in calling the Comfort Experts for assistance. Refrigerant is not a safe chemical to have to leak out of the confines of your AC system. Regardless of the source of your whistle, our team can help.

Buzzes, Bangs, Clangs, Hums, and Clanks

Hopefully, these descriptive sound words help you to place the sound you have heard coming from your AC unit! Any of these types of sounds are likely indicating some manner of loose parts inside your machine. The Comfort Experts would be happy to diagnose the precise location and cause of your loose part-related noise, and either put it back into place or repair/replace as needed.

Clicks and Buzzes

Sometimes clicking and buzzing noises coming from your air conditioner are demonstrating an issue with an electrical component in your AC unit. Electrical issues are generally simple for an experienced professional to resolve, but they aren’t simple enough that it is at all a bright idea for you to take the task on yourself. If you suspect that your AC unit has any sort of electrical failing occurring inside of it, don’t hesitate to call one of our licensed AC technicians to come out and run a proper diagnostic test on your system.

Squealing or Ratting

When there is an issue with a part of the blowing system of your air conditioning, squealing and/or rattling sounds can often be heard. Blowers and fans in the ductwork will likely exhibit this sort of noise when they are beginning to deteriorate. If your system is in need of a tune-up or a replacement of one of these components, our team members can help by evaluating the state of your AC parts and quoting you to repair or replace failing parts.

Most sounds start off as harmless indicators of a minor issue in the function of your AC unit. If you heed the warning of your system as it tries to warn you of an impending issue, you should be able to schedule routine maintenance in a timely fashion and avoid costly repairs. Sometimes, we don’t notice the sounds until something is more seriously out of whack in our system. In either case, Comfort Experts would love to aid you in making sure your heating and cooling systems are running expertly.
