Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Moyer Total Indoor Comfort. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.
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 usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 over and over, 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 showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Moyer Total Indoor Comfort. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 484-646-3363 to make your appointment.
