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 consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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 busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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 setting up normal maintenance appointments with Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 641-628-3621 to set up your appointment.
