Is your AC a little too noisy? Then you’re in luck: in today’s blog, we show you some easy ways to reduce air conditioning noise. Keep reading to learn more!
Install Your AC in a Strategic Location
You can start working on reducing your system’s noise level right from the moment when you install it.
The best strategy is to install the unit away from bedrooms, or other rooms you use frequently. If you are not sure where to install your HVAC to minimize noise, ask a contractor; they will be able to offer guidance.
Keep in mind that an AC will always emit sounds, although some of them may point to issues that you need to address with the help of a professional.

Use a Sound Blanket
A sound blanket is exactly what you imagine: a piece of sound-absorbing material you drape over your unit to dampen the noise it makes.
Sound blankets are usually placed on the compressor, and can reduce the noise your unit makes by 30% to 50%.
On top of that, sound blankets also help avoid the formation of condensate on the compressor during humid days.
Service Your Unit
While some level of noise can be considered normal, in some cases the noises your AC makes are a sign that your unit needs to be serviced.
The reason can be as simple as a loose screw or as complex as a refrigerant leak. In any case, a professional tuneup can help you identify the source of the noise and nip any other potential issues in the bud.
Remember, Spring is one of the best times of the year for an AC tuneup. So if your unit is making noises, this is the right time to call the pros and ensure some quiet comfort for your home.
