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

May 04, 2017


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 877-389-2465 to set up your appointment.
