Every air conditioning unit makes a myriad of noises during its operation. It might rumble a bit when it starts, or shake when the motor is running. This is normal and should not make homeowners worry about their unit. There are noises, however, that you should be aware of, and Superior Air is more than happy to discuss these with you so you can easily know when to call for air conditioning repair.
Here are some of the noises you should be mindful of.
Your unit’s electrical parts naturally make some clicking sounds upon starting or after using, but nonstop clicking clearly indicates there’s a problem with your unit. Not only could a part be starting to deteriorate, but this noise can also be the start of a failing thermostat. Regardless of what it is, it is best to call for services from Superior Air so we can conduct a thorough air conditioning maintenance plan.
Like most air conditioning units, a gentle hum is normal when you turn your unit on. When that quiet and gentle tone turns into a loud and serious hiss, your system may be alerting you that you need to take action. In most cases, loud hissing may come from your ductwork, indicating that a large quantity of air is leaking. While small leaks are normal, large leaks indicate that your ductwork may have cracks, which may result in energy loss and costly issues if left ignored.
Clanking noises may indicate that there are some parts of your system that have come loose. The majority of clanking noises stem from a failing blower, but you can’t guarantee that without having your unit checked by a professional.
