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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially 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 showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 636-206-4250 to set up your appointment.
