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 range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically 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 Aggressive Mechanical. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a few 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 busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 determine 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 setting up routine maintenance appointments with Aggressive Mechanical. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 732-806-5536 to arrange your appointment.
