Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.
Here are a few of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might 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 normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 beginning by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co.. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 863-216-2923 to make your appointment.
