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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Air Temperature Control. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 repeatedly, you probably 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 showing up by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Air Temperature Control. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 478-202-3170 to arrange your appointment.
