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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably 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 showing up by setting up routine 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 set up your appointment.
