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 regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like James Heating & A/C, Inc. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • 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 repeatedly, 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 showing up by setting up regular maintenance appointments with James Heating & A/C, Inc. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 336-853-6070 to arrange your appointment.
