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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically 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 attentively, 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 likely 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 showing up by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 601-292-9763 to arrange your appointment.
