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 certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Gordon Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator 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 few of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential 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 unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 arranging regular maintenance appointments with Gordon Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 850-250-0335 to make your appointment.
