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 certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Marcos AC & Heating. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Marcos AC & Heating. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 713-469-3357 to make your appointment.
