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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like True Heating & Cooling. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece 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 normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up routine maintenance appointments with True Heating & Cooling. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 720-316-1898 to make your appointment.
