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 certain set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely 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 setting up routine maintenance appointments with All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 256-801-4701 to make your appointment.
