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 set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are some of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 727-369-6195 to arrange your appointment.
