Air Conditioner Noises: What is Your System Trying To Say To You?

When your air conditioner turns on, does it sound like it’s trying to get your attention? Banging, hissing, clicking and other types of sounds are often signs of your system saying, “Something’s wrong with me!” Today we’re going to help you interpret those sounds and talk about some of the most common air conditioner noises and what they mean for your system!

Some air conditioner noises are normal

Before you get too worried about your air conditioner, remember that you system will make a certain degree of noise every time that it’s operating. When everything is working properly, you’ll hear the sound of your system powering on and a gentle and consistent hum throughout every cooling cycle. However, if your air conditioner grows progressively louder as it operates, or if it’s making strange noises that you’ve never heard before, it’s likely an indication of a problem (see below).
