If you hear loud buzzing noises coming from your air conditioner, it’s very likely that it is malfunctioning. Typically, the issue is either loose parts, missing or broken isolation feet, refrigerant leaks, or a malfunctioning compressor.
All of the parts of your air conditioner work together to keep your home cool in warm temperatures. So, if one part comes loose, it puts extra stress on the other parts. After extra wear puts enough stress on those parts, your unit can start making a buzzing sound that indicates a need for repair.
Your unit’s compressor sits on small rubber feet called “isolation feet” at the base of the air conditioner. After you’ve been using your air conditioning for a while, those feet can disintegrate or crack, which makes the compressor lose balance and start to make a buzzing noise when in use.
As they’re being used to cool your home, air conditioning units can actually freeze up—this may sound counter-intuitive, but it’s true! Your Aircond unit can become frozen if refrigerant begins to leak from the unit, which often begins emitting a buzzing sound as a result.
Finally, the issue at hand could be a malfunctioning compressor, which is the part of the unit that pressurizes and cools down the refrigerant that then cools your home. A buzzing noise may mean that your compressor isn’t working correctly or that the electrical voltage of your unit is not right.
With both of the issues outlined above, we would advise you to call a professional to repair your air conditioner. Give our team at Isotech a call today at 6012-3358 693 and we’ll fix your Air Cond right away.
