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 normal number 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’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 314-262-4541 to make your appointment.
