Why Is My AC Making a Weird Noise?

Why Is My AC Making a Weird Noise?

Enjoying your summer here in Springfield gets a little tricky when your air conditioning (AC) system suddenly makes a noise you’ve never heard before.

Instead of planning a day trip to enjoy the warm weather, now you’re stuck dealing with a potential air conditioning problem—in the heat of summer!

Hearing an unusual noise coming from your air conditioner can be frustrating, but our MB Heating & Cooling professionals are prepared to assist you—give us a call! We wouldn’t want your AC to break down on a hot summer day here in Illinois, so be sure to reach out after you first hear a strange sound and suspect a problem.

In the meantime, here are a few reasons why your AC might be making some unusual noises:

  • Banging

Your air conditioning system may make a banging noise if you have an unbalanced blower, motor problem, or damage to your compressor. In any of these scenarios, you will need to contact one of our professionals to repair the faulty or broken component.

  • Buzzing

A buzzing sound coming from your air conditioner could mean the fan blades in your outdoor unit are not working correctly. This sound could also indicate you have an electrical issue—something you’ll want to address right away.

  • Clicking

Some air conditioners make a clicking sound when they operate, but if your system doesn’t usually make this sound, and then you hear continuous clicking, there could be a problem. Our experts can determine if the issue is with your thermostat or a cooling component and get your air conditioning system running efficiently again.

  • Humming

If your AC doesn’t usually make a humming sound, and then you hear it doing so, an electrical issue could be the culprit. You’ll want our professionals to evaluate the problem and take care of it for you.

  • Squealing

An unusual squealing, screeching, or squeaking noise could mean your blower fan motor is damaged or not working correctly. Our cooling professionals can inspect your system and correct any issues to ensure it is working as designed.
