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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable 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 quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 540-369-3790 to arrange your appointment.
