How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making05/04/2017Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually highlights that it needs heating and cooling service. Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like KDM Service Corporation. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem. Here are a few of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes: Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose 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 turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 regular maintenance appointments with KDM Service Corporation.
