First & Foremost, Don’t Neglect Annual Maintenance!

Duct Cleaning can improve your HVAC system performance and reduce operating noise.

Check Your Ducts!

Leaking and poorly insulated duct work not only makes your AC noisier, it’s also less efficient. So make sure you check your ducts for cracks and other signs of damage and seal them with duct sealant for a long-lasting hold.

Once you’re sealed, consider calling in our team for a comprehensive duct cleaning. Our technicians will clean all of your ducts using high-compressed air and a powerful vacuum attached to your furnace to help improve system performance and reduce operating noise.

Upgrade your AC unit today with Action Furnace.

Upgrade To A New AC Unit

If your air conditioner is rattling like a freight train, chances are it’s an older unit. To help improve the peace and quiet of your home, consider upgrading to a newer more efficient AC model.

When shopping around for a new unit look for ones with lower decibel levels and features like variable speed fans which operate more quietly. Action Furnace is leading the way in installation techniques and has perfected the design and set-up of modern residential air conditioning systems. Give us a call today to discuss your options!

Install Sound Dampening Materials

If upgrading a new unit isn’t in the cards for you this year, you can try investing in sound dampening materials like sound blankets specifically designed to hug your outdoor unit and reduce operating noise.

The blower and compressor components in your outdoor unit can cause significant vibration and noise while they’re working away. Installing mounts or pads under the feet of your outdoor unit can help minimize this noise from traveling into your home.

If your AC is making banging or grinding noises, don’t delay and call in our experienced repair technicians at the first sign of a breakdown.

Don’t Ignore Repairs!

A broken unit is a noisy unit. If your AC is making banging or grinding noises, don’t delay and call in our experienced repair technicians at the first sign of a breakdown.

We require hours of mandatory training for every technician, every year and we really stand behind our repairs, because at Action Furnace we’re the home of the Fixed Right or it’s Free Guarantee. If one of our AC repairs should fail within the first cooling season, we will repair it again absolutely free, we will also return 100% of your original investment.

Remember your home should be a quiet, peaceful oasis, not a tarmac. By taking advantage of some of the tips offered today you can significantly reduce the noise of your air conditioner while improving home comfort and relaxation.
