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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like C-N-O Comfort Zone. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. 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 showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with C-N-O Comfort Zone. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger.
