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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services.
