An air conditioner that’s louder than normal can happen due to a variety of reasons. Investigating the louse noise is important to avoid the problem getting even worse over time. Sometimes you can make a few adjustments on your own to fix the issue, or you may need to contact a local HVAC company to further investigate the source of the noise.
Here are a few tips to remember to help you lessen the sounds from a noisy air conditioner.
1. Replace Air Filter
Many people make the common mistake of not replacing their air filters on a regular basis. However, a dirty air filter causes your system to work much harder, and it causes your air conditioner to sound louder than normal. Usually, it’s a good idea to replace your air filter every few months, as writing it down on a calendar is a great way to avoid forgetting to replace your air filter.
2. Problems With Air Ducts
Sometimes problems with your air ducts can result in your air conditioner operating louder than normal. Issues with air ducts can be wide-ranging, whether it’s due to leaks, too much dust, or improper installation. Scheduling an HVAC inspection is a great way to determine if problems with your air ducts are causing your air conditioner to operate more loudly than normal.
3. Replace Your System
An air conditioner will eventually reach near the end of its lifespan, which can cause it to sound a lot more noisy than usual. Most air conditioner’s lifespan will range around 15-20 years before you need a replacement. Getting a new air conditioner will often improve the energy efficiency of your home while also making it much easier to relax due to the lesser noise.
