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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Point Heating & Cooling. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part 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 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 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 Point Heating & Cooling. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 715-504-0533 to set up your appointment.
