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 shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Watts Electric & A/C Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are some of the more routine 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 might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Watts Electric & A/C Inc. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 601-736-7362 or use our convenient online scheduler to arrange your appointment.
