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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some 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 normally indicates a broken 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 carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 214-261-0034 to set up your appointment.
