Staying comfortable in the hot Jupiter, FL, summer requires effective and efficient air conditioning. When your AC system is up and running great, you likely don’t give it much thought. However, when you start to hear weird air conditioner noises, it’s essential to understand how to address the problem before it worsens.
If your air conditioner is squealing while it’s running, it’s likely that one of its fan motors is failing. It’s crucial to realize there are fan motors in both the inside and outside units of your AC system. You want to check both of them to determine which fan is having the issue so that you can replace it. A professional can help you do this.
Chattering is a noise that your air conditioning system can make in a number of different situations to signal that there’s a problem. If your AC system is approaching 10 years old, chattering is likely alerting you that various parts are deteriorating. In newer systems, chattering could be a result of a clog or even a loose fan.
You’re likely familiar with hearing a clicking sound when the air conditioning system turns on and off. However, if you hear this clicking sound while your system is operating, it’s an indication that something’s wrong. In most situations, this is going to be a problem with one of your system’s electrical components. Therefore, you’ll need to call an air conditioning professional for assistance.
If you hear a consistent banging noise when your system starts up, shut it off. A banging noise indicates that there’s a loose or broken part inside of your system that needs fixing before it can run again. In this type of situation, it’s best to contact an air conditioning professional to handle the repairs for you.
