Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.
Here are some 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 normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something 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 West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc.. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 614-450-1575 to make your appointment.
