Hi:rosebud

The noise could be either the fan motors bearings or the squirrel cage bearings. Best to have it checked out before it developes into a more serious problem.

If you referring to the outside unit, I suggest you not use the unit until it is checked out also. A reduced fan speed at this unit could cause really expensive problems if left uncorrected for too long.

Regards,
TomBartco
