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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Gordon Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that highlight 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Gordon Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 850-682-5509 or use our convenient online scheduler to set up your appointment.
