If your A/C unit is making spooky sounds it could signal loose or worn parts inside your system. A loud humming or buzzing AC sounds are often caused by loose parts, such as nuts, bolts, and screws. These parts can cause major damage to your unit. Not only that but losing parts and/or debris can cause your air conditioning to run inefficiently, costing you money on your utility bill. Sounds terrifying, huh? ?

Here are 5 common sounds and their causes: :

  • Humming
    No, it’s not the song stuck in your head. Rather, your air conditioner is most likely making a humming noise because it’s dirty. Dust and dirt can often obstruct the circulation of the AC unit’s fan causing an eerie sound. However, you can do a little troubleshooting of your own by getting rid of excess plants and weeds around your AC unit. After doing so, take off the top of the unit and gently wipe away dust and dirt with a cloth or brush. If that doesn’t work, give True Climate Heat + Air a call, and we can pinpoint the problem.
  • Screeching
    No, there’s not a vampire bat flying around in your A/C unit. A screeching or squealing sound typically means that your air conditioner’s fan motor bearings could be shot or the fan belt could be loose or worn out. Again, it’s best if one of our professional A/C technicians pinpoints the problem and fixes it.
  • Banging
    No, there’s not a zombie banging on your AC unit trying to get out. Although this could signal a few things, it could mean that something, such as a bolt, screw, or spring, has come loose in your air conditioner. However, it could also be a more serious problem with your motor or blower assembly. Regardless of what it is, you should have the problem diagnosed by one of our certified A/C technicians.
  • Hissing
    Yes, it’s possible in Oklahoma that a slithery snake could have coiled up in your A/C unit, but the more likely scenario is that you leak somewhere in your air conditioner. In this case, the easiest solution is to schedule an appointment with one of our highly skilled A/C technicians who can ascertain where the leak is located and recommend the best solution. Then again, Oklahoma City is known for having issues with snakes (looking at you, Kevin Durant ?).
  • Bubbling
    No, there’s not a miniature sorceress concocting a poisonous witch’s brew in your air conditioner. Chances are your A/C unit’s refrigerant levels are running low. This could also be caused by a refrigerant leak, so it’s best to have one of our trained A/C technicians take a look.
