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

 

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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Honke Heating & AC. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially 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 showing up by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Honke Heating & AC. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 503-376-8806 to set up your appointment.
