Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like A&M Heating & Cooling LLC. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might 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 troubleshoot the issue.
Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips 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 regular maintenance appointments with A&M Heating & Cooling LLC. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 520-200-1048 to make your appointment.
