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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up regular maintenance appointments with M & S Heating & Air LLC. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 301-363-4699 to make your appointment.
