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 set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Jett's Heating & Air Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Jett's Heating & Air Inc.. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 815-410-1128 to set up your appointment.
