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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Summit Air Conditioning Inc. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably 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 beginning by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Summit Air Conditioning Inc. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 561-582-3390 to set up your appointment.
