What’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:
- The whoosh of air. As your AC pushes cool air into your home, it’s normal to hear a steady stream of air.
- 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.
- Clicking on or off. You may hear your AC clicking gently before it turns on or just before it shuts off. Under normal circumstances, these clicks only last for a few seconds.
Now let’s look at five sounds you should never hear from your AC and what they may mean. If you recognize any of these, please reach out to us for expert assessment.
