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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like B&D Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece 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 cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by setting up regular maintenance appointments with B&D Air Conditioning.
