Air conditioner causing a raucous? We’ve been in your shoes. While lots of homeowners depend on window air conditioners to keep them cool during the summer months, they can be quite the headache. The biggest problem? The noise – it can be downright disturbing. See below to find out why your window air conditioner is so loud:
- The Fan Blades Are Bent – sometimes foreign objects can get into the air conditioning using causing the fan blades to bend. Check to make sure they’re all straight – if they’re not, you can straighten them until they are properly aligned.
- There’s Something Inside – no, we’re not talking about a creature of some sort, but we are talking about foreign objects that could get into the system. After all, the majority of the unit hangs out the window so there’s a good chance things like sticks, rocks or leaves can find their way inside. You can look for and remove these objects by opening up the front grill.
- Loose Grill – hearing excessive vibrations or rattling? It could be coming from the front grill if it’s not sitting securely. Most of the time, they’re held in by a simple locking mechanism so if the grill isn’t put back properly, or if it’s not locked into place it could cause noises to occur.
