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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. 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 starting by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc.. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 803-796-9172 to arrange your appointment.
