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 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 weird sounds, it normally indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like HCE Systems Inc. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with HCE Systems Inc. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 276-302-0076 to make your appointment.
