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

Service

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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Total Comfort Solutions. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a few of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part 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 turns 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 determine 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Total Comfort Solutions. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 404-987-5502 to make your appointment.
