1. Check the fan blades.
The most common cause of noisy air conditioners is a problem with the fan blades. If the fan blades are bent or broken, they can create a loud noise as they turn. To check the fan blades, turn off your air conditioner and inspect the fan blades. If they’re bent or broken, you’ll need to replace them.
2. Check the air filter.
If the air filter is dirty or clogged, it can cause loud noises as it runs. To check the air filter, turn off your air conditioner and remove the air filter. Inspect the air filter for any signs of dirt or clogs. If the air filter is dirty or clogged, put in a new one.
3. Check the fan motor.If the fan blades are in good shape, the next step is to check the fan motor. If the fan motor is faulty, it can cause loud noises. We recommend calling an HVAC technician to inspect the fan so that you can avoid injury. The technician can also best diagnose the problem and explain to you what kind of repair is needed.
4. Check the compressor.The compressor is another common cause of noisy air conditioners. If the compressor is damaged, it can create a loud noise as it runs. Again, this is something you should have a technician check for you. They will inspect the compressor for any signs of wear or damage and let you know what kind of repair is necessary.
