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 range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 regular maintenance appointments with Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 318-855-2326 to set up your appointment.
