Air Conditioning System Noises You Shouldn’t Ignore

Oct 15, 2018

The air conditioning system of your Brisbane home is essential to your comfort, especially in the Summer. When it works great, everyone is happy, but what happens when something just doesn’t sound right? The answer is, you need to get it checked out by an Intagas technician to make sure that the noise you hear won’t lead to bigger problems. Following are common sounds that should signal mental alarms that you need an inspection by a seasoned technician.

  1. Hissing, especially when the system isn’t running, means you may have a leaky refrigerant line, an internal valve leak or a compressor with pressure that is too high.
  2. If you hearing constant clicking, it could mean there are electrical control issues.
  3. Banging, thumping and rattling usually indicate something is loose in the motor or blower. When the banging becomes loud, it usually means something has broken off.
  4. Humming or vibrating could mean that your system has loose parts or the motor is out of balance. The louder the sound, the greater the need to get it inspected. Humming could mean that you have a bad motor or your compressor is straining.
  5. Buzzing could indicate several different problems, including loose parts, debris, a loose fan motor or a refrigerant leak.
  6. Squealing or screeching could be a sign of a failing component, such as a motor bearing or a bad belt. The latter could break, resulting in your blower not running at all, which in turn, could cause more damage.
  7. Grinding could mean there is a problem with the compressor. As the unit starts to fail, piston can cause this sound.
  8. New sounds, when your unit is normally quiet, indicate that you should call Intagas as soon as possible for help.

Regular maintenance of your system and equipment will keep your air con system operating at the highest degree.  A maintenance plan can help reduce the number of unexpected problems. It also provides you with the peace of mind that the system is running the way it should. Maintenance plans can:

  • Decrease electricity bills and make your system more efficient
  • Result in fewer repairs as small problems are found and addressed early before they become big ones
  • Increase equipment life by making sure everything is running as it should
  • Ensure safer operation of equipment
