Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Ambient Air. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.
Here are some of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
- 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 routine maintenance appointments with Ambient Air. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 520-357-4912 to set up your appointment.
