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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like True Temp Heating & Air Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably 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 starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with True Temp Heating & Air Inc. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 706-695-7492 to arrange your appointment.
