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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like JonAire Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a few of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 arranging normal maintenance appointments with JonAire Inc. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 702-866-9322 to arrange your appointment.
