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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 308-624-3485 to set up your appointment.
