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 consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Heartland Heating & Cooling. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a few of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Heartland Heating & Cooling. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 515-344-3579 to make your appointment.
