Is your air conditioner going bump in the night or acting like it’s trying to rise from the dead? Yes, Halloween is only a couple of weeks away, but the last thing you want to hear are scary noises emanating from your AC unit. Here are 5 spooky sounds that are more trick than treat.
5 Spooky AC Sounds Explained
Your Air Conditioner Is Humming
Your Air Conditioner Is Hissing
Your Air Conditioner Is Making a Bubbling Noise
Your Air Conditioner Is Making a Banging Noise
Your Air Conditioner Is Screeching
And no, it’s not to the tune of “Monster Mash.” Rather, your air conditioner is most likely making a humming noise because it’s dirty. Dust and dirt can often obstruct the circulation of the AC unit’s fan causing an eerie sound. However, you can do a little troubleshooting of your own by getting rid of excess plants and weeds around your AC unit. After doing so, take off the top of the unit and gently wipe away dust and dirt with a cloth or brush. If that doesn’t work, give Easy AC a call, and we can pinpoint the problem.
Yes, it’s possible in Florida that a slithery snake could have coiled up in your AC unit, but the more likely scenario is that you have a leak somewhere in your air conditioner. In this case, the easiest solution is to schedule an appointment with one of our highly skilled AC technicians who can ascertain where the leak is located and recommend the best solution.
No, there’s not a miniature sorceress concocting a poisonous witch’s brew in your air conditioner. Chances are your AC unit’s refrigerant levels are running low. This could also be caused by a refrigerant leak, so it’s best to have one of our trained AC technicians take a look.
No, there’s not a zombie banging on your AC unit trying to get out. Although this could signal a few things, it could mean that something, such as a bolt, screw, or spring, has come loose in your air conditioner. However, it could also be a more serious problem with your motor or blower assembly. Regardless of what it is, you should have the problem diagnosed by one of our certified AC technicians.
No, there’s not a vampire bat flying around in your AC unit. A screeching or squealing sound typically means that your air conditioner’s fan motor bearings could be shot or the fan belt could be loose or worn out. Again, it’s best if one of our professional AC technicians pinpoints the problem and fixes it.
