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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a couple 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 typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 check if it’s a problem 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 AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 479-226-8196 to make your appointment.
