Most electrical appliances, like fridges and air conditioners, produce some noise as they operate. However, most modern air conditioners run quietly and with minimal noises. Therefore, if your air conditioner is making irritating or loud noises, there could be an issue with the system. There’s no point in subjecting yourself to living with a noisy cooling system that interrupts your relaxation. Hire a certified HVAC technician to fix the problem. Some possible reasons behind a noisy AC are explained below.

Worn-Out Compressor

Air conditioner compressors are often noisy. However, the component could be worn-out or faulty if it makes an unusual noise or is louder than usual. Consider calling a technician to inspect the compressor and fix it before it affects other components or the AC itself.

Faulty Fan

Air conditioners have one fan at their front end and another at the rear end. The two AC fans should be functioning correctly for the cooling system to provide the comfort you need in your Cheyenne home. Fans require regular maintenance and cleaning for them to work effectively. If the rattling or humming noises seem to originate from the fans, then you’ll need an expert to check on the fan blades. They could be loose or have accumulated debris or dust.

Motor Issues

Another possible culprit of noisy air conditioners is a faulty motor. A fan motor can sometimes get off balance, so it bangs around the inside of the AC’s outdoor unit and causes irritating noises. Blower motors can also experience a similar issue when they get dirty or off balance. The movement when the motor gets off balance causes strange noises. Therefore, call a technician if you notice screeching noises to check on the blower fan motor and repair or replace it. Also, a worn-out fan belt can cause a squealing sound.
