5 Reasons Why Your Aircon Condenser Is Making Noise

5 Reasons Why Your Aircon Condenser Is Making Noise 

Aircon is the most perfect thing to have in your home if you are willing to have a better time in Singapore. As it is known to all of us that Singapore is sort of a tropical country where it never snows and for that reason the weather can get pretty much hot like other Asian countries. In such hot condition it is always good to have an aircon at home as most of the people struggle to cope with the excessive temperature in the country. But it is sometimes very much annoying to have aircon condenser as home as this tend to make annoying noise.

Many of us might be thinking what an aircon condenser is. Well, aircon condenser is one of the main parts of an air conditioning unit which helps to cool the vapour that comes through the compressor. Normally it looks like an ordinary coil. These aircon condensers are not only used in aircon but also in refrigerators.
Sometimes aircon condensers become very much noisy and many people fails to figure out why the condenser is making such noise. Here are 5 reasons why your aircon condenser is making noise:

1. If AC units efficiency reduced then it is not unnatural for an aircon condenser to make noise.

2. Overheating of compressor can also be another reason as the compressor is considered as the heart of the AC unit and overheating might cause it to breakdown. Though under ideal condition in such situation it will work fine but when leaks are present then the compressor will prematurely fail. In such case a full replacement of the compressor will be required and if the damage taken by the AC unit is a major one then the whole condensing unit will have to be replaced which would be quite expensive.

3. Low gas level can be another reason for the aircon condenser to make noise. Because, when the gas level is low then the evaporator coil can freeze. In such cases after a period when these breaks down there would be noise occasionally.

4. Fan blades are very important in an aircon device. Sometimes these fan blades get bent and because of being bent they end up brushing across the condenser which eventually cause a very loud and annoying noise to come out of the aircon condenser.

5. The last reason for the aircon condenser making a loud noise is the blockage in the compressor. This blockage can be caused in many ways. Sometimes because of a very low temperature the water which the compressor produces becomes ice and pave the way of water getting its way out of the aircon condenser and when it becomes a major one the blockage occurs and thus there will be a loud noise.
So these are the 5 reasons why your aircon condenser is making loud noise.

In such situation the best thing you can do is to get the experienced mechanic to get it repaired. Though these takes a very short time to solve such issues if you have experience and knowledge still mechanic can do it best.
