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 number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Rescue Heating & Air . You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably 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 starting by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Rescue Heating & Air . We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 361-265-4371 to set up your appointment.
