Is That Sound Coming From My AC?

April 19th, 2021

Well, first it’s important to take some measures to ensure this noise is coming from your AC and not from somewhere else. Make sure the TV is off, the kids are quiet, and whatever other noise-making devices are off or asleep. If the noise you’re hearing can quite obviously still be heard, and you’re able to pinpoint it coming from your AC or your air ducts, then you’ve got a problem. Luckily, we have a solution!

AC noises are nothing new. Just like an old beater car or a computer that’s on its last legs, a machine will start creating noise when it runs into a problem.
