Clicking Noise???

My truck has had this clicking sound when my heat or a/c is on since I got it. But now that im starting to use the a/c it is worse. And very annoying. when I turn the heat or a/c on some clicks really loud and my rpms jump for a brief second. Has anybody else had this or can tell me what to do????

I didnt know where to put this so I hope this is the right spot

Ford thought it was smart to run the a/c compressor like 90% of the time even if you have the heat up. The only time its off is off, face only, or feet only.

My truck does it also, it helps with moisture in the air by running the ac briefly,but is annoying as hell.

it really shoudln't be that loud though. I can't even hear mine in the cab when i'm driving down the road. I can notice the idle change but that's about it. Make sure the a/c system is charged.

It keeps the seals lubed during the winter so they dont dry out

It should also cycle during defrost for the humidity right?
