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 normal set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part 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 cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

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