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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number 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 should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Gillman Heating and Air. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably 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 beginning by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Gillman Heating and Air. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 478-202-3076 to set up your appointment.
