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 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 needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Pepper AC & Htg Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that highlight 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 piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Pepper AC & Htg Inc. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 940-202-1184 to make your appointment.
