Question about Heating & Cooling
If the noise goes away fairly quickly, it's perfectly normal. what you are hearing is the compressor beginning to work. compressors require extra power to start because pressures have to be de-equalized in the system, and that is why it makes that noise. now, if the noise continues as long as the compressor runs it may be getting old and worn, but could still last a long time. check freon pressures if possible to verify that the system has the proper charge, sometimes that can affect how it sounds, too.
