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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually 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 Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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 normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 912-208-2470 to set up your appointment.
