5 Noises That Mean Trouble For Your AC

Monday, May 16th, 2022

woman-listeningWhat’s that sound? This is a question no one wants to ask when it comes to their AC, but it happens quite often. Hearing any of these five sounds is a sign you need to call for air conditioner repair.

Before we delve into the sounds to watch out for, it’s important to note what sounds are normal to hear from your AC. These include:

  • Takeoff noises. Like a plane gearing up for a flight, it may be normal to hear your AC gearing up as it starts its cooling cycle.

This one might be TOO old

We’re tempted to make this blog post a single sentence long: “The best way to take care of an old AC is to replace it with a new one.” Done. Bob Mims out.

But that’s not quite fair to “old” air conditioning systems—and what do we really mean by old, anyway? We don’t want you to replace your home’s cooling system years before you should.
