Our St. Paul air conditioner repair team knows that air conditioners can make a lot of weird noises, and for the most part the majority of them are easy (and safe) to ignore. There is one noise that you should absolutely pay attention to, though, because it’s more likely than not a warning sign that something is about to go seriously wrong with your unit. That noise is a prolonged hissing sound.
If you hear a hissing noise coming from your air conditioner, calling our air conditioner repair team as soon as possible. The issue that is causing the hissing noise is most likely gas leaking from a hose or pipe or an issue with the compressor. In either case, it’s not great news, but our air conditioner repair team can handle it. While leaks are usually relatively easy to repair, compressors can be expensive. You may be better off getting a new air conditioning unit, but your Hoffman technician can give you their advice on whether to repair or replace. The ultimate decision is always left up to you, but if you do decide to replace your system we have a great selection of Lennox systems to choose from and you can save $1,700 when you buy from us.
If the hissing noise gets louder or you start to experience other issues with your air conditioning unit, shut down the system and give the Hoffman team a call. We provide 24-hour air conditioner repair service in the St. Paul and Minneapolis areas, so you’ll never have to be without cold air for long. You can reach our team at 612-260-8144 or contact us through our website today.
