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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 scheduling routine maintenance appointments with Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 662-281-1231 to set up your appointment.
