How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making05/04/2017Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service. Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem. Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes: Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached. Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning.
