Why is my HVAC making noise?

It’s normal for your heating and cooling equipment to make a bit of noise as it runs. There are several considerations that affect its sound level, like age and insulation.

However, hearing strange or loud noises may mean a future problem with your machine. If you don’t fix it, there can be significant (and costly) effects later on.

Systems that make too much racket increases sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily affect energy efficiency, it could impact comfort in your home.

Heating and cooling systems made recently are quieter than previous models. However, it’s good to look for sound levels for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s located near your bedroom or living room.
