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 regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a few 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 normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 724-370-0141 to make your appointment.
