How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Abilene Air-Tech Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

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 typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Abilene Air-Tech Inc. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 325-200-4667 to set up your appointment.
