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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Tri County Air Care LLC. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem 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 Tri County Air Care LLC. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 469-213-8367 to arrange your appointment.
