Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Kilbourne Heating & AC. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.
Here are a few 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Kilbourne Heating & AC. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 561-287-7071 to arrange your appointment.
