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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like US Air Heating and Cooling. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand 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 typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. 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 routine maintenance appointments with US Air Heating and Cooling.
