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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird 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 loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component 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 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 identify if it’s an issue 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.
