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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Bormida Mechanical Services Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a couple of the more routine 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 piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
