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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a few 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 typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 starting by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc.
