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 certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like McFadden Heating & Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

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

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with McFadden Heating & Cooling. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 1-866-781-0111 to set up your appointment.
