Are you wondering why your air conditioner is so loud? A noisy air conditioner is a common complaint from homeowners.
Thankfully, a loud noise isn’t always a sign that you need to replace your AC. In most cases, you just need a repair.
Two Easy Fixes You Can Do on Your Own
1. Clean Your Dirty Air Filter
A dirty air filter restricts airflow and can cause noise. You can clean or replace your air filter, and should check it every 3 months.
2. Defrost Your AC If It’s Frozen
There are many reasons why your air conditioner can become frozen. One of the most common reasons is running your air conditioner when it’s still cold outside.
Make sure to only turn on your air conditioner if it is at least 18-22°C outside. Running your AC when it is colder than this will cause it to freeze up. To fix your frozen air conditioner, you will have to turn it off for up to 24 hours until it thaws.
If your air conditioner becomes frozen again, it could be a sign that something is broken, or that you have a refrigerant leak. Make sure to call us for a tune-up to fix the problem.

Help Prevent Problems with Regular Tune-ups

Regular tune-ups will also help your AC have a longer lifespan which will save you money. Plus, a tune-up is a great way to keep your AC working efficiently, which will help you save on your electricity bill too!
