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 regular set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger 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 few of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 262-358-9468 to make your appointment.
