loud, on the inside of the house

by kristin
(chagrin falls, ohio)

The noise is definitely coming from the blower on the inside of the house in the basement. I checked the outside unit and it sounds perfect.

The noise coming from the blower in the basement is more loud and intense than the normal sound. It sounds like it is about to bust.

Loud, shaky and just abnormal compared to when the unit runs. Our house is only 10 years old, it is the original air conditioner.

Frozen AC unit, top of furnace? NEW
by: Anonymous

Had this happen years ago in a much more humid climate, but enough water builds up that it turns the exchanger into a block of ice! Try running your furnace for heat... yes, wiser at night or early morning, but its the only way to clear out the blocked air flow. This is causing your noises for the most part. Some hear the starter solenoid outside, others hearing their outside compressors with debris or bearing issues. If your AC unit is part of your furnace Central Air, then odds are you are dealing with a block of ice restricting air flow and causing the blower to sound like its coming apart. Good luck, expect to see your furnace's internal condenser unit, remove a lot of water while defrosting.

new lennox central air loud air vents NEW
by: Anonymous

just had new Lennox system. air good but too loud and too much noise at most of the air registers. Will wake you and cannot hear TV. This will be fixed. Just paid 6000.00. Installer says he has idea but has not been seen or heard since. Stay away from small town dealers in North Carolina. Installers need training. Talk good game but not fixed three weeks.

Newly installed Trane A/C unit too loud when it comes on NEW
by: Anonymous

This unit is driving me bonkers especially at night! So loud when it comes on you can't sleep. And if you are watching TV you have to turn up volume on TV. This was not a good purchase!

Loud rumbling noise like a lawnmower starting NEW
by: Anonymous

My inside handler makes a loud rumbling noise like a lawnmower starting up when we turn it on.
Have had an ac come and change the motor as it is under warranty but the noise is still there. It does not make the noise when turning on the heatpump onlt the ac. It is a Rheem. What could
it be. The ac man is stumped. He says that they will have to keep replacing parts until it stops.

Loud Indoor Sound
by: 2myhvac

Perhaps, the sound is not from indoor blowers, it could be the blowers surrounding environment. Had you check the duct-work connection.

The loud sound is coming from a source, and you will need to find that sources. You need to listen and look for the sound.
