Frequently Asked Air Conditioning Questions - All Star Plumbing and Air

My Furnace Makes A Lot Of Noise. Is That Normal?

It's normal for your furnace to make a "click" when you first turn it on followed by a low, steady hum as it runs. However, noises like grinding, popping, squeaking, scraping, or loud thumps and bangs indicate that there could be a mechanical problem within your heating system. If you hear these noises while your furnace is running, then turn it off and schedule an inspection with your HVAC professional to see if a heating repair is necessary.

How Do I Know My Air Conditioner Needs Replacement?

The keys signs that your air conditioner needs a replacement are:

  • It's no longer cooling your home properly. If you've noticed that your home stays uncomfortably warm despite the air conditioner running, then it may be time to call us and inquire about a replacement unit.
  • It's making loud and unusual noises. Aside from the typical low hum that some air conditioning units make while they run, disruptive noises like hissing, banging, grinding, and squeaking signal a problem. In some cases, your air conditioning may only need a repair job. However, returning noises are a sign that a replacement is necessary.
  • It's not distributing cool air evenly. If only some rooms in your home are getting cool while others are remaining hot and stagnant, then your AC unit could be reaching the end of its service life.
  • It's constantly breaking down. If your air conditioning is giving out multiple times throughout the year, then it's likely beyond the help of repair work and needs a replacement unit.
  • It needs extensive and costly repair work. In these situations, it's smarter to get a brand new unit than to spend nearly the same amount on repairs for an old unit that will likely have problems again soon.
