Why is my HVAC making noise?

It’s normal for your comfort equipment to make some noise as it operates. There are several factors that influence its sound level, like age and insulation.

However, hearing weird or loud noises can mean a future problem with your equipment. If you don’t fix it, there might be significant (and costly) consequences down the road.

Units that make a lot of noise furthers sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily affect energy efficiency, it can affect comfort in your house.

HVAC equipment manufactured today are quieter than previous years. However, it’s wise to look at sound ratings for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s installed near your bedroom or living room.
