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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially 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 beginning by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc..
