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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Comfort Zone Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that show 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 may mean a component 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Comfort Zone Inc. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 239-214-0411 to arrange your appointment.
