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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like County Line Mechanical LLC. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with County Line Mechanical LLC. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 717-216-0846 to set up your appointment.
