Understanding the Noises Your Air Conditioner Makes

Is your air conditioner making strange noises? Now that the cooling season is here, we want to make sure that your a/c is working efficiently and quietly. Here are a few of the most common reasons behind a noisy air conditioner.

Air Conditioner Noises:

  • Rattling – Do you hear rattling in your outdoor condenser? It’s possible that a few of the fasteners have become loose. Check the screws, bolts, and anything that holds your air conditioning cover plates in place.
  • Whistling – A whistle is usually caused be ineffective seals. Check to make sure that there aren’t any cracks in the seams of your ducts.
  • Screeching – Just like a car, air conditioners require belts and motors to run efficiently. If there is a problem with your motor, you may experience screeching.
  • Thudding – This means that something is loose in your system. It is likely that you are hearing thudding every time the fan blade passes the fallen object.
