AC Repair Warning Signs: Strange Sounds

service-timeWhen it comes to living comfortably in our area, your air conditioning system is a major player. With weather as hot as ours is for much of the year, your air conditioner is going to be putting in a lot of working hours. That is exactly why it is so important that you take every precaution possible to keep your system functioning properly and reliably. This includes taking care of any problems with your air conditioner as soon as you have any reason to believe that there is a problem to begin with.

While a malfunctioning air conditioner is always bad news, the good news is that there are generally some warning signs that your system is struggling. Among the most common of these red flags are strange operating sounds. If your air conditioner doesn’t sound the way it usually does all of a sudden, don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s no big deal. Dial our number to have the problem resolved with professional AC repair in Mesa, AZ.

New or Loud Sounds Indicate a Problem

One major mistake many homeowners make is believing that the fact that their air conditioner is up and running means that it is running properly. This is not the case. In fact, many problems may persist for quite some time before the system actually breaks down. Ignoring strange sounds as long as your system is still operational is only going to give existing problems the time they need to do more extensive damage to your system.

  • Banging sounds. If your air conditioner is emitting a loud banging sound, then it is likely has a loose component banging around in the cabinet. The indoor unit may also be unbalanced.
  • Clicking sounds. You may hear your air conditioner clicking as it starts up or settles down. These are electrical components, and it’s not necessarily a sign of trouble. If the system is constantly clicking, though, there is probably an issue that requires professional repair service.
  • Screeching sounds. Does your air conditioner sound like it is screaming at you as it runs? Then it may need some added lubrication. However, it could also be a more serious problem, such as high internal pressure. Whatever the case, you can count on our team to diagnose the problem accurately and resolve it completely.

Your air conditioner is not going to operate completely silently. While some level of noise is normal, the development of new sounds is something that you should always take seriously. We just depend on our air conditioners too much in this part of the country to give any “minor” problems the chance to do real damage to our systems.

Working with our professional air conditioning technicians means that the job will be done right the first time, every time. From diagnosing the problem accurately to resolving it completely, you can count on Goettl Air Conditioning Phoenix to help you keep your cool, no matter how hot the weather outside may get.
