Heating and cooling systems all have a regular 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 usually highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Air Temperature Control. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.
Here are a few of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Air Temperature Control. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 478-202-3170 to arrange your appointment.
