Reasons Why Air Conditioning Unit is Noisy

Why is my AC making so much noise?

You might be wondering why your air conditioner is so loud. Air conditioners naturally make noises because these are larger units with various moving parts that are working together to maintain a cool temperature inside your home. However, if you're beginning to notice unusual or particularly loud noises, this can be a sign of a serious problem that should be investigated as soon as possible.

Call for service if you hear any of the following types of noises coming from your AC:

  • Rattling
  • Popping
  • Grinding
  • Hissing

When you experience annoying and loud noises coming from your air conditioner, you shouldn't delay in calling for professional air conditioning service. Allowing your cooling system to continue running with a potential mechanical problem can dramatically increase the chance of catastrophic damage to your system, not to mention the inconvenience this will cause for you when your AC suffers a breakdown.
