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

May 04, 2017

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly 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.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Watts Electric & A/C Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a few of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, 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 starting by arranging routine 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 to make your appointment.
