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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Breeze Air and Heat. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential 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 unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 over and over, 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Breeze Air and Heat. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 817-864-1021 to arrange your appointment.
