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

May 04, 2017

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it should have 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 may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
