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

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Cool Air Solutions. Your system might simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an indication that major repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—Rattling usually indicates a loose piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

Regular maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning. If you schedule maintenance appointments with Cool Air Solutions, we can point out and repair potential problems before they can get worse.
