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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Vogts Heating & Air. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Vogts Heating & Air. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 208-621-0129 to set up your appointment.
