It’s common for your HVAC equipment to make a little noise as it operates. There are a couple of details that impact its sound level, including age and insulation.

However, hearing weird or loud noises can mean a future malfunction with your equipment. If you don’t repair it, there can be major (and expensive) repurcussions down the road.
