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 constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Jent Mechanical LLC. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Jent Mechanical LLC. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 937-845-1111 to arrange your appointment.
