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 normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing 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.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 519-296-4437 to make your appointment.
