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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a few 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 typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • 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 again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 918-682-8238 to set up your appointment.
