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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Air Quality Solutions. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a couple 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 usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Air Quality Solutions. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 614-871-4144 or use our convenient online scheduler to set up your appointment.
