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 certain set of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like AW Heating & Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, 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 normal maintenance appointments with AW Heating & Air Conditioning. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 402-318-5351 to set up your appointment.
