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

Service

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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Olde Towne Heating & Air. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose 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 closely, 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 over and over, you potentially 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 showing up by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Olde Towne Heating & Air. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 843-485-0967 to set up your appointment.
