Many homeowners around the country struggle with a noisy air conditioner. But you can easily end the struggle and quiet your AC down for good.
Do you want to quiet your own air conditioner down? Keep reading to discover how to do it!
Fence Up That Noisy Air Conditioner
If you want to fix a loud air conditioner, you may need to try multiple strategies. And the first possible strategy involves building a fence around your outside AC unit.
Before you gather all your supplies, though, try putting up some plywood around the unit and seeing if it reduces the noise. If so, you can proceed to build a new fence, but make sure it is at least three feet away from the unit.
Make sure there are no gaps in the fencing. Such gaps will allow noise to more easily escape!
Buy a Sound Blanket
If your unit or air condenser is relatively new, the main culprit for noise is probably the compressor. But you may be able to counteract this by buying a sound blanket.
There are universal blankets that fit most models. But you can also seek out sound blankets designed for your specific AC unit.
You should be able to install this on your own pretty easily. But don’t forget that blankets work best on newer AC units. Older units may still generate excess noise via the fan, with or without a sound blanket installed.
While you’re at it, you may want to install some acoustic seals on your windows!
Buy a New Unit
Speaking of older units, there is very little you can do to reduce the noise level of an older model. To really get some peace and quiet, you’ll need to go ahead and buy a new model.
Most people are understandably hesitant about the idea of buying a brand-new air conditioner. But the simple truth is that recent years have seen a quantum leap in quieter AC design.
Newer models are also more energy-efficient. Over time, your new air conditioner may very well pay for itself and then some!
Call in a Professional
Not sure whether you need to get a new AC unit or work on silencing the old one? In that case, you need to call a local heating and cooling professional.
Such professionals can easily identify and isolate the source of the excess noise. And they should have the tools and experience necessary to fix the issue.
And if you do decide to get a new air conditioner, such a professional can offer you advice about which models are best. Even a quick phone call can help you potentially save a bunch of time and money on your new purchase!
