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 certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Eco Fresh HVAC Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 again and again, 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 showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Eco Fresh HVAC Inc.. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 714-855-1717 to arrange your appointment.
