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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note 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 a sign 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 zero in on the problem.

Here are a few 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 normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part 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 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 a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Vogts Heating & Air. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 208-621-0129 to make your appointment.
