Are air conditioners noisy/blowy in winter?

The cold weather can cause condensers to become noisier than usual. 

This noise isn’t too much to worry about unless you notice any other serious faults in the unit or if you notice it is excessively noisy.

Sometimes, when an air conditioning unit is in heating mode, it can sometimes stop producing heat from time to time. This is so that it can effectively defrost itself, preventing ice and frost from building up on the condenser coil, and basically keeping the unit in good working order. For this reason, if you think there might be a fault in the unit, it’s always best to wait for a little while to see if it starts back up again once the defrost cycle has finished.
