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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

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

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually 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 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 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 641-812-2028 to arrange your appointment.
