Are you embarrassed to invite your friends over because your
air con is making loud and irritating sounds? Can't get a
good night's rest because your air con is throttling like a
motor engine? Most noisy aircon's the most common type of
problem along with smelly air conditioners and air cons that
have stopped blowing cool air. Let us introduce you to the
basic components of the airconditioner and help you
troubleshoot on why your air con is making weird noises. You
might want to refer to the aircon's manual to familiarize
yourself with the parts we mention.
If the noise coming from your aircon's is due to dirty
outdoor or choking fan coil, this can be verified
by putting your hands at blower. You feel that aircon's wind
is not coming out smooth or not coming at all from certain
of the blower and the aircon's will be producing a “pfft”
type of sound. It may also be that the aircon's blower is
unbalanced due to the accumulation of dirt. When spinning
rotary things are unbalanced, vibration occurs and a weird
throttling type of noise is produced.
Liquefied gas is evaporating inside the piping and when it
evaporates too fast, those with sensitive ears can pick up
the sound of evaporation. Faulty motor bearings making a
distinct screechy sound and should be replaced immediately.
It is a sign that your motor might jam and overheat. When
this happens, you will have to replace the entire motor
instead of just the ball bearings and you will have saved
money if the problem was dealt with earlier.
It is best to perform basic maintenance for your air
conditioner by cleaning the airfilter and outdoorpanel
regularly. Simply take wets cloth and wipe those panel and
filter free of dust once every two weeks. This will help to
prevent the accumulation of dirty the breeding of
bacteria. These easy steps can go a long way in helping you
to save on maintenance and repair costs. You may also want
to consider getting a chemical wash service for your air
conditioners once a year as it is the most effective way of
thoroughly killing all the microorganisms.
When a problem crops up, get the air-con professionals down
to identify the problem with your air con as soon as
possible to prevent the issue from exacerbating. It could be
a single problem like clogging or multiple faulty units that
is causing the noise. Remember to keep your air con warranty
in a safe place upon purchase of your air con unit
especially because some problematic air-cons can be a result
of a manufacturing defect. Also keep the receipts of your
servicing jobs as some companies do provide service warranty
should the problem still persist.
