Heat Pump Startup Noise...is this normal

vbxtOctober 10, 2011


Is the noise that my Rheem heat pump with scroll compressor makes normal? The model number is 13PJL30A01.

Here is a link to a Youtube video of the noise. Thanks.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

this is a low end condenser.

Is it cooling and/or heating satisfactorily?

How long has it been installed?

Has it made this noise since day 1?

I would not be concerned based on sound from video.
