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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Boyles Mechanical LLC. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some of the more common sounds that highlight 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 may mean a part 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 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 regular maintenance appointments with Boyles Mechanical LLC. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 866-326-9537 to make your appointment.
