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

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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Mitchell Heating. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • 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 repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Mitchell Heating. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 719-596-6677 or use our convenient online scheduler to arrange your appointment.
