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 regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Connolly Electric & Mechanical. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a few of the more common sounds that indicate 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 may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Connolly Electric & Mechanical. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 928-244-8840 to arrange your appointment.
