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

 

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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Halverson Brothers Inc. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that show 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 might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially 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 starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Halverson Brothers Inc. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 715-352-4052 to arrange your appointment.
