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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Freed Heating & Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component 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 flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Freed Heating & Air Conditioning.
