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 regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a loose 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 might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a few 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 usually 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 cycles 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 identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging routine 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 make your appointment.
