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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like North Mechanical Heating and Cooling. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a couple 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 typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns 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 routine maintenance appointments with North Mechanical Heating and Cooling. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 928-263-8570 to make your appointment.
