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 normal set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Gilray Heating and Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on 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 normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Gilray Heating and Cooling. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 715-301-0727 to set up your appointment.
