Air Conditioning FAQ: Why Worry About Loud Noises?

When you live in Texas, a broken down air conditioner is much more than a minor annoyance. It can bring your home life grinding to a halt. It can completely decimate any semblance of comfort in your home, and it can even prove dangerous. If you are serious about protecting the condition of your AC, as well as your comfort, then you need to schedule prompt air conditioning repairs in Spring, TX.

No matter how minor a problem may seem, remember that any irregularity can spell serious trouble. If you hear odd noises coming from your system or any of its components, don’t ignore the situation just because your system is still up and running. Instead, dial our number and have a professional technician get your system right back on track.

  • Hissing sounds may have you looking out for snakes around your property, but it could also be a sign of trouble with your air conditioner. Do you hear hissing near your outdoor unit? You may have sprung a refrigerant leak, unfortunately, and could be hearing the sound of refrigerant escaping the system. Hear hissing in your living space? That could be the result of conditioned air leaking out of damaged ducts.
  • Banging and clanging sounds are likely an indicator that a component of your air conditioning system has worked itself loose from its secured position. Again, you may be tempted to ignore such an issue if you cannot hear it in your home and your AC is operating OK. The fact is , though, that the problem is really only going to get worse over time, and that you are putting your system at serious risk of damage by forcing it to continue to operate.
  • Screeching sounds could indicate a severe lack of sufficient lubrication in your system on its moving components. You could also have a slipped or worn-out fan belt. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem, and we’ll resolve it entirely.
