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 consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Breathe Healthier Air. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a couple 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 normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 over and over, you potentially 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 setting up normal maintenance appointments with Breathe Healthier Air. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 772-600-7151 to make your appointment.
