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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Air Houston Mechanical LLC. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to describe 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 indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

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

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Air Houston Mechanical LLC. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 832-777-1521 to set up your appointment.
