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 set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Siloam Springs Heating & AC. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Siloam Springs Heating & AC. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 479-308-8176 to make your appointment.
