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 regular number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual 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 experts like Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 308-646-3827 to arrange your appointment.
