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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Langford Cooling. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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 component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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 scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Langford Cooling. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger.
