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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Innovative Mechanical, LLC. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Innovative Mechanical, LLC. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 770-726-7407 to set up your appointment.
