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 range of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 734-363-8907 to set up your appointment.
