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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Central Air LLC. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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 Central Air LLC. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 203-357-5913 to set up your appointment.
