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 consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.

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

Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate 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 disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Freed Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 309-323-9584 to set up your appointment.
