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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually 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 pros like Kelley Mechanical. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Kelley Mechanical. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 859-209-3003 to arrange your appointment.
