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 constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like YES R&M Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with YES R&M Inc.. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 562-286-6624 to make your appointment.
