Common Air Conditioner Noises & What They Mean

Your air conditioner should operate quietly. If you hear strange noises coming from it, then there’s a good chance that there’s a problem with your system. Fortunately, when you work with Hader, HVAC problems will become a thing of the past. Our technicians know how to deal with all sorts of air conditioning issues. In today’s blog post, Hader Heating and Air Conditioning discusses the possible reasons why your air conditioner is making weird noises.

Squealing Noises

Outdoor fan motors and indoor blower motors can squeal loudly when they’re about to fail. Rusty or dirty blower fan blades can also squeal when they rotate. Regular HVAC maintenance from our professional technicians can prevent these problems from occurring, but if you’re already hearing these sounds, then your system may soon need repairs.

Buzzing Noises

If you hear a buzzing noise coming from your AC’s outdoor unit, this could indicate that your system has loose components. It might also mean that there’s debris in the outdoor unit. A buzzing noise can even indicate that there are electrical problems with your air conditioning system. In addition, the noises could be caused by a blower that’s out of balance or an air filter that needs changed. You’ll need to call Hader Heating and Air Conditioning and schedule an inspection to figure out the exact cause of the noise.

Loud Banging

Loud banging noises coming from your air conditioning system are usually caused by loose parts. These sounds can also result from the fan in your outdoor unit hitting an obstruction. The most common parts that break or become loose in an air conditioner are the moveable parts. If your system has loose parts, then you’ll need to have a technician assess the damage to your system and determine a possible solution.
