How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Mighty Ducts. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken 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 closely, 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 arranging normal maintenance appointments with Mighty Ducts. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 714-464-3376 to make your appointment.
