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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Moon's Air. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a few of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 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 routine maintenance appointments with Moon's Air. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 318-671-5355 or use our convenient online scheduler to arrange your appointment.
