Why Is My AC So Loud?

May 31, 2023 | Blog

When you’re ready for peace and quiet, the last thing you want to come home to is a loud air conditioner. When you have loose parts and clogs in your cooling system, it can make loud banging noises that can disrupt your sleep and your general quality of life. Luckily, there are a lot of things you can do to get those loud noises out of your house!

At Island Airco, we know it can be difficult to do the things you love with annoying sounds happening in the background. We provide tons of different HVAC services so that problems can be diagnosed early and accurately, to quiet that loud noise as quickly as possible! If you’re having loud noise come from your air conditioning, calling an Eureka Springs technician is a perfect way to get rid of it quickly.

What Can Cause A Loud AC?

There are a lot of different problems that can cause your air conditioner to make noise! Most of these can be avoided with general maintenance and cleaning, but some will need professional intervention from a technician. Some of the most common problems that can lead to noises in your HVAC are:

  • Dirty air filter
  • Loose parts
  • Old or worn-out parts
  • Incorrect installation
  • Low refrigerant level

Determining the exact cause of the noise can be difficult without professional technicians on board. They will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend the best solutions, as well as give you the information to address the problem in the future.

Quiet AC DIYs

There are a few things you can do yourself that can help quiet any of the noises that your AC makes. If you’re noticing some loud sounds, the best do-it-yourself solution is to change your air filter and install sound-dampening materials.

Changing your air filters consistently will prevent any clogs from potentially rattling in your vents. There are some sound-dampening materials available at commercial stores, but you can ask your technician if you can’t find them.

When Should I Schedule Professional AC Repair?

If your air conditioning is making loud noises, you should call a technician as soon as possible. This is because while some level of noise is normal, disruptive noise indicates a larger problem that requires professional attention. Ignoring the noise coming from your HVAC system can lead to more expensive repairs or even a full replacement of the system in some cases.

Technicians will also be able to identify and address the issues that can cause loud noises, such as low refrigerant levels, faulty thermostats and leaks. Scheduling your regular maintenance twice a year and repairs when you need them can make your AC last longer and run more efficiently.

Can I Do AC Repair Myself?

While there are rudimentary repairs that you may be able to do yourself, trying to perform air conditioning repairs by yourself is not recommended. This is because there are chemical and physical dangers that you can come into contact with.

The specialized knowledge that comes with technician training means our team is prepared to deal with these risks directly and safely. Attempting to make repairs can be dangerous and can even make the problem worse.
