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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Polar Air & Heating Inc. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Polar Air & Heating Inc. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 702-623-0579 to set up your appointment.
