I've got a Amana Ultra Prestige compressor (?) (the thing outside, with the
big fan, motor, coils and what sounds like a pump). Forgive me I just moved
to Central TX from New Mexico where we are blessed to only need evaporative
Anyway, the thing outside is seems to be getting noisier. It's making a
rapid pumping noise around 180 to 240 bpm. Probably the sound of the pump. I
looked inside and all I saw was the big fan and what looks like a pump
wrapped up in a insulated blanket. Is there something I should do? Should I
just live with the noise and is this normal for an Amana to be on the noisy
side? My house is under warranty and I'm not sure this would be covered
because the a/c seems to be working fine.
In relationship to the other compressors in my neighborhood this one seems
larger compared to other similar size homes. My neighbor has the same size
house with a much smaller compressor.
Oh yeah, another thing. I have an attic fan I just recently replaced. Do
these things actually help cut the cost of operating the a/c?
Thanks in advance and hopefully these questions don't sound too idiotic.
