How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc..
