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

Service

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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component 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 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 identify 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 715-301-0256 to arrange your appointment.
