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

May 04, 2017

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range 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 should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 arranging normal maintenance appointments with LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc.. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 570-648-0748 to set up your appointment.
