What Does That Sound Mean?

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

Running your air conditioner to cool down the home shouldn’t cause noises that are so loud you can’t hear yourself think.

We want to give you some input on what the sounds are that your system may create which are a warning that you need AC repair in Garner, NC. What’s more, if you pick up on any of these sounds, please make sure to reach out to Sloan Service Company, Inc. to schedule those repairs.
