Air Conditioning loud pitch at 7 speed


Jun 11, 2020

Not sure if this is the right place to post it, I’ve had my car for a month almost now. I’ve never had the air conditioning above the 5 setting. Today I pressed the air condition button on my app to have it cool for when I entered and before I stepped in, I heard this loud pitch fan sound from the outside.

I’ve done my research and apparently it’s the condenser fan. moreso just want confirmation if a lot of people experience this?

When my AC is on high there is LOUD noise outside, not inside; but minor vibration inside while parked. It’s not notable when driving or not on high.
