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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Central Heating & Plumbing. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few 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 typically 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 detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially 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 showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Central Heating & Plumbing. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 724-401-1843 to arrange your appointment.
