It’s common for your comfort unit to make a bit of noise as it runs. There are a couple of factors that impact its sound level, such as age and insulation.
However, hearing strange or loud noises may mean a future problem with your unit. If you won’t repair it, there may be major (and expensive) repurcussions in the future.

Equipment that makes a large amount of noise furthers sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily affect energy efficiency, it might influence comfort in your home.
HVAC systems made recently are quieter than previous models. However, it’s smart to look at sound rankings for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s placed near your bedroom or living room.
