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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are some 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 typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 715-301-0256 to arrange your appointment.
