Why is my HVAC making noise?

It’s common for your heating and cooling equipment to make a little noise as it runs. There are a couple of factors that impact its sound level, like age and insulation.

However, hearing weird or loud noises may mean a possible malfunction with your unit. If you fail to repair it, there may be significant (and expensive) effects later on.

Equipment that makes too much noise furthers sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily affect energy efficiency, it might influence comfort in your home.

HVAC systems created now are quieter than previous years. However, it’s wise to look for sound levels for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s placed near your bedroom or living room.
