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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Schagrin Gas Company. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that show 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips 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 identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Schagrin Gas Company. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 302-658-2000 or use our convenient online scheduler to arrange your appointment.
