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 normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally 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 attentively, 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 repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

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