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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Total Comfort. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign 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 understand the concern.

Here are some 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 normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably 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 showing up by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Total Comfort. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 201-891-1333 or use our convenient online scheduler to set up your appointment.
