Customer Question

My two units, recently purchased (10 year warranty; one year part and labor) are making a terrible thumping noise (blub, blub) on starting and for some time thereafter. It disturbs my sleep, my wife's sleep and our neighbors. The dealer ( Central Air Miami) tells me " this is what air conditioners sound like. I don't think so. I had Trane units that lasted 30 years before I replaced them with these 2.5 dogs. Please help.

Trane units are not notorably noisy and especially not to the point they would keep anyone awake.Sounds like he may be misleading you. Do you happen to have the model numbers and a video clip I could hear?
