Sounds Your Don’t Want to Hear From Your AC

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

Your AC has several ways to warn you something is not right. It doesn’t yet have the ability to self-diagnose its problem and provide a warning via the thermostat screen (the technology will get there eventually), but it has other options. One of the best is making strange or loud sounds. 

You know what an air conditioning system sounds like since you’ve spent plenty of time in homes and buildings with them.
