Your air conditioner's compressor has a very important task: it compresses refrigerant into a hot gas, which allows heat from your home to be released to the air outside. Without a properly working compressor, it would be impossible for your air conditioner to cool your home. So if your compressor (located in your outside unit) begins to make strange noises, you should be able to recognize them and know when to give Jerry Kelly a call. Today we're going to talk about a few of the most common air conditioner compressor noises and what they might say about the condition of your system!
Any time that your air conditioner's compressor starts to make noises that you haven't heard before, contact Jerry Kelly right away. Whether the noise is one of the ones we listed above or it's an entirely different sound, it almost always means that your compressor needs a thorough and professional inspection.
The types of repairs that we'll need to perform on your compressor might be as simple as tightening loose parts or adding a bit of lubrication, or it might be as severe as requiring a replacement of the entire compressor. The sooner you contact Jerry Kelly, the quicker we'll be able to diagnose and fix the problem and the less likely it will be that the issue will affect other parts of your system.
