Why Is My Air Conditioner Making Noises?
All air conditioners make some level of noise when in operation. However, if you have noticed yours is louder than usual there could be something wrong with the internal components. Here are some common air conditioner noises and what they could mean:
- Banging is a sign of a broken part or faulty compressor
- Hissing indicates an air leak, or in some cases, a refrigerant leak
- Buzzing hints that your system is dirty; your filters or condenser coils may need cleaning
- Repetitive clicking sounds are a sign of an electrical issue
- Rattling is a sign parts are deteriorating and coming loose
You should never ignore your noisy air conditioner. Doing so allows problems to grow, which will inevitably disrupt your supply of warmth completely. It could also put you and your family’s safety at risk through electrical faults, exposure to chemicals or fire. The best thing to do when you hear an unfamiliar noise coming from your air conditioner is to turn it off and call a qualified technician.
