Outside Air Conditioner Unit is Squealing

The sounds comes from the unit outside and you can usually hear it from in the house as well. It will start to squeal when the AC is running and if you start to hear it you want to call out a professional. They will come out and look for a problem with the motor that might be going out. They also can be looking for a belt that has gotten lose and needs to be replaced as well.
AC Unit Makes Loud Banging Noise when Starting
You may also start to notice that there is a bang when the unit starts up. It can also continue to happen while it is running or even when it stops. You want to make sure you listen for any banging sounds and call out a professional. The professional will come out and look for parts that are broken off and moving around the unit. If all the parts are not secured they can move around and cause more damage. it is a good idea to stop using the unit until after the repairs have been made.
AC Making Clicking Noise
Sometimes you may start to hear a clicking or a buzzing sound. This is usually an issue that is attributed to the electrical part of the AC unit. The sounds are telling you there is a problem with the system and you want to make sure that it is inspected and repaired right away. The clicking is usually switches that are turning on and off because there is a hiccup in the line. The signal that is trying to reach the unit is being interrupted and that is causing the clicking. The buzzing is more than likely a problem with the actual wires. These are both issues that can lead to a potential fire hazard which is why you want to have them repaired right away.
