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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Stanford Heating & Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially 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 Stanford Heating & Cooling. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 812-825-8695 to set up your appointment.
