My Air Conditioner Is Making Alarming Sounds

The heat of summer is something that most of in this area really love. It’s a lot easier to get out there and enjoy the most intense heat of the summer season, though, when we have comfortable homes to return to at the end of the day. If you want to ensure that your AC is able to provide that type of environment to you reliably, you need to have it professionally serviced and repaired when you notice any irregularities with its performance.

One of the most obvious warning signs of potential trouble is the development of strange operational sounds. If your AC is sounding different than usual, call our number immediately. We’ll make sure that any necessary air conditioning repairs in Kingsburg, CA are completed correctly.

What Do These Sounds Mean?

One of many reasons why it is so important to work with skilled, professional AC technicians is that there are different potential causes of just about any problem. The successful resolution of a problem demands a proper diagnosis. That’s what you’ll get when you work with us.

Banging sounds likely mean that a component in your system has slipped free of its mountings/securings. When this happens, the loose component itself is obviously in trouble. So too, though, are the other components that it may be slamming into.

Screeching sounds are frequently reported by homeowners, and are very likely to develop if one does not have his or her air conditioner routinely maintained. It could be the result of insufficient lubrication on a moving part in the system. It could also signal that a belt in the system has slipped or is wearing thin.

Hissing sounds are a bit tougher to notice than the aforementioned problems, but they are no less serious. This could actually be the sound of refrigerant escaping the system via leaks. If this happens with your system, it is very possible that it will suffer serious damages. You are, best case scenario, going to be paying too much for a lousy cooling performance.
