Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may 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 understand the issue.
Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 setting up routine maintenance appointments with Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 614-451-0846 to make your appointment.
