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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something 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 Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc..
