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

 

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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Kapaun & Brown Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted 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 carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 normal maintenance appointments with Kapaun & Brown Inc.. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 641-753-3563 to arrange your appointment.
