Check your air filter. if its ok call the guy who installed it and have him fix the leak. It prob is a bad weld joint. Check the joints on the copper tubing inside at the coil and outside at the a/c and feel around and see if there is oil leaking from the joint. If not you may have a leak in a coil or on the txv inside on the coil.

Sounds like there is a problem with your unit. The cooling tower doesn't have anything to do with the compressor other that the delivery of water to your heat pump. The compressor is probably shutting off on a low pressure because the water is cooler than in summer. I think the heat pump you have is low on charge or has a defunct TXV.
Automotive AC is a complex thing to resolve. I have rebuilt many and have seen what it takes to make them work correctly. Now send me make, model, year and engine type and from there I can help you solve your problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze
This seems to be more a civil issue than a mechanical issue. I would simply talk to the neighbor about your concerns. Maybe they are aware of the problem and already have a plan of action.
On a mechanical side, all A/C's are going to be noisy. Some are louder than others. There is really nothing that can be done about that.
Further, you can always consult a local building official to find out the requirements for the location of the outdoor unit. If the system is in violation (and installed after the law was activated), it could be moved to a better location.
Take care in your approach as you may not have to live next to the a/c for 15 years, but you will have to live next to those neighbors regardless of where the unit is placed for the same time.
Possible causes are dirty filters, dirty condenser coil, dirty evaporator coil, or low referigerant charge. Any one of the conditions will affect heat transfer.
Check the filters in your indoor unit, If they seem to be clean and replaced on a regular basis, your evaporator coil is probably in good shape. Unfortunatley on some Weather King models even checking the evaporator coil is not possible due to the extensive amount of referigerent lines that block access to the coil without some major work including evacuating the refrigerant.
The most likely cause is a dirty outdoor condenser coil. On weather king models you will have to remove the casing that surrounds the coil because is is built in such a way that the condenser coil cannot be properly cleaned with the casing in place. Once it is removed make sure breaker is switched off and clean the coil with a water hose.
If your outdoor coil is not dirty then it is a refrigerent problem.
The inside part is the bit that gets cold, which is where the condensation forms (if using it to cool). there should be a drain. Unfortunately Weather King do not appear to support their products online except to dealers.
If you can open the unit up enough to where you can see the space below the coils on the inside part (usually just behind where the air comes out, but not always), you should be able to see the drain - if you can then follow where it goes, then let us know what you have if you can't figure out how to unblock it.
If you can post back a couple of photos of the unit and installation I might have a better idea of what to tell you to check.
Unplug anything from the power before you start opening things up.
If you need help finding your local dealer, please ask and I will look.
Hope this helps :)
Cold air is denser than hot air, so is harder to move. All vents have some mechanism to regulate flow, so close all of the downstairs vents. Check to see if your furnace fan motor has more than one speed, & set it on maximum. Keeping the fan on all the time will help as well. If all else fails, you may need a more powerful fan motor.
