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 certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose 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 closely, 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 907-202-9798 to make your appointment.
