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 consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Air Alliance Team. You could 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 describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Air Alliance Team. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 636-206-4250 to set up your appointment.
