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 constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like A2Z Air Inc. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few 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 usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips 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 beginning by setting up routine maintenance appointments with A2Z Air Inc. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 561-270-6228 to make your appointment.
