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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights 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 professionals like Symbiont Service Corp. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Symbiont Service Corp. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 941-306-4161 to arrange your appointment.
