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 range of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates 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 pros like Air Houston Mechanical LLC. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 normal maintenance appointments with Air Houston Mechanical LLC. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 832-224-3887 to arrange your appointment.
