Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Farnell Mechanical, Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.
Here are some of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. 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 showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Farnell Mechanical, Inc.. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 334-245-4748 to arrange your appointment.
