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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably 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 scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 254-307-9572 to arrange your appointment.
