Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.
Here are some of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 770-450-1539 to set up your appointment.
