Is Your Air Conditioner Compressor Making Noise? Here’s What it Might Be Trying to Tell You

5.0 Rating

small_9322611007Your 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!

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.

They weren't able to service my daughter's unit but Emily was the absolute greatest in guiding us to someone who could help. Emily earns all five stars in customer service!

Jerry A. Was very nice and explained everything to me and my wife. He let us know what things would cost. He wore his mask and work shoe covers when inside. He made a uneasy situation enjoyable.
