With temperatures being so high, in Plano, Carrollton, and other cities we cover, it is not fun when your AC sounds funny.
Here are some noises you can hear:
If an outdoor unit begins to make noises that you can hear inside, some parts are likely loose and some part inside the unit needs to be repaired or replaced.
Your first troubleshooting actions should include checking to make sure that all of the bolts and screws in the unit are tight and snug.
Some units may have natural squealing, so to speak, so keep your ears open for sounds when it does not sound like, as they say, normal squealing.
In some situations, with this type of problem, the AC unit is equipped with a sensor that will shut the unit off. If this happens, don’t worry. This is a failsafe mechanism included for your safety.
Usually, a whirring sound is indicative of bad bearings around the indoor blower, or a bad fan on either the external or internal AC. The helicopter-like noise occurs when the blades are spinning at an angle, out of place, or hitting what they should not be.
Broken or detached parts like a piston pin, a crankshaft, a connecting rod, or any number of other internal components that make up the internal compressor that has snapped or disconnected can start banging inside of your AC.
A simple repair like changing an air filter could be a simple solution. Don’t forget loose parts inside the unit or the copper lines that run from the outside to the inside and vibrate off of that surface.
Clanking sounds, like clank-clank, may indicate an unbalanced or, again, loose parts.
So, click-click, bang-bang noise is not good. Give us a call.
Humming is somewhat expected, and not unusual, but if it does not sound like your usual AC humming and it is more like a heavy-metal band from the 80s, captured by the show Stranger Things, you may consider investigating it, or we can do it for you.
How to save money with a programmable thermostat
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you could save as much as 10% on your home heating and cooling costs each year, simply by adjusting your thermostat 7–10 degrees from its normal setting for eight hours a day. For example, if you normally keep the house at 74 degrees, you could program your thermostat to turn the temperature down to 67 degrees at night, since cooler temperatures are more conducive to sleep.
