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 certain set of sounds that they consistently 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.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like SchagrinGAS Company. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a few 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 usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece 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 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 showing up by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with SchagrinGAS Company. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 302-231-1380 to arrange your appointment.
