Is your air conditioner making noise? If so, it may have a problem that needs professional servicing from Andersen Heating & Cooling. Read on to see some likely causes and solutions for a noisy A/C unit in Charlotte.

A/C unit making bubbling noise in Charlotte

If you notice a bubbling or gurgling sound, you may have a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant is the substance that allows the air conditioner to transfer heat out of your home. Therefore, a refrigerant leak can drastically impact your A/C unit’s ability to function. If your refrigerant is leaking, call Andersen Heating & Cooling for professional service.

Air conditioner making clicking noise in Matthews, NC

A clicking noise coming from your air conditioner could result from multiple issues. If you hear clicking while the air conditioner is running, check the outdoor unit. Sometimes twigs and leaves can get stuck in the grill and come in contact with the fan blade. This can create a clicking sound when the fan is running, so simply clear all debris from the outdoor unit. If the A/C unit is clicking when you try to turn it on, however, there is most likely an electrical issue with the unit or the thermostat. Electrical problems may not resolve themselves and can require professional service, so call Andersen if your air conditioner won’t turn on.

Air conditioner making noise & buzzing sounds

Buzzing noises coming from an air conditioner can be loud and obnoxious, but they also may alert you to a faulty HVAC system component. Refrigerant leaks can cause the A/C unit to freeze over, which in turn causes a buzzing sound. In addition, loose or damaged components can create buzzing and rattling noises when the air conditioner is in use. In each of these cases, an HVAC tune-up will fix the problem and prevent it from reoccurring.
