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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning.
