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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually 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 closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. 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 E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 979-323-6109 to set up your appointment.
