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 regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Airmax Long Island Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign 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 problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally 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 attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Airmax Long Island Inc. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 631-737-5566 to set up your appointment.
