Does a Noisy Condenser Mean Your System Is Ready to Fail?
If you're like most people, you probably only have a broad picture of your home's air conditioning system. Of course, most people know that the compressor is the most expensive component in the system and that it lives in the outdoor condenser housing. Unfortunately, this one piece of knowledge leads many people to believe that a noisy condenser means their whole system may be doomed. Luckily, your condenser unit may make noise for a wide range of reasons, and they don't mean that your compressor is on its death's bed or that a new system is in your immediate future.
