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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number 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 highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 repeatedly, you potentially 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 beginning by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 847-306-8990 to arrange your appointment.
