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

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means 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 Mustang Mechanical. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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 busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely 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 beginning by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Mustang Mechanical. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 972-445-9504 to arrange your appointment.
