Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Dave's Diversified Services. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.
Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 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 beginning by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Dave's Diversified Services. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 540-636-3396 to set up your appointment.
