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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range 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 indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Brookwood Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may 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 troubleshoot the problem.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially 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 beginning by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Brookwood Inc. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 641-316-9803 to arrange your appointment.
