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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. 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 showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 361-214-1203 to set up your appointment.
