Why Do I Have a Noisy Air Conditioner & Can I Fix It Myself?

First things first, you shouldn’t attempt to fix your noisy air conditioner on your own! Unless you have professional knowledge of HVAC electrical system layouts and the proper meters to test all the working components of your AC, you are putting yourself and your air conditioner at a significant risk for harm.

Contact us today for urgent air conditioning repair services.

Why Is My Air Conditioner So Loud?

Why is my air conditioner making a loud noise? This is a question we get a lot!

If your AC is humming, it could be a couple of different things, such as a turned off breaker at the panel box or a blown high voltage fuse at your outdoor disconnect box. Another (very likely) possibility is that the humming sound is due to a bad start capacitor for both the compressor and the condenser fan motor.

The capacitor’s job is to provide a boost of energy to both the components at start-up, so when the capacitor fails, the fan motor will not run and the compressor will try to start for a few seconds and hum very loudly—resulting in a very noisy air conditioner! It’s incredibly important to have a trained professional diagnose the humming sound coming from your air conditioner before the problem gets worse.

To fix your noisy air conditioner, schedule air conditioner repair in the central New Jersey area with Arctic Air Conditioning. Call 732-455-9110 or fill out the contact form on this page!
