Why is my HVAC making noise?

It’s normal for your heating and cooling unit to make a bit of noise as it works. There are several details that influence its sound level, including age and insulation.

However, hearing strange or loud noises might mean a potential malfunction with your unit. If you don’t repair it, there can be serious (and pricey) repurcussions down the road.

Equipment that makes a lot of sound increases sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily impact energy efficiency, it could affect comfort in your house.

HVAC units made today are quieter than previous years. However, it’s good to look for sound levels for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s located near your bedroom or living room.
