Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.
Here are a couple of the more common sounds that highlight 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 turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 209-257-3156 to set up your appointment.
