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 heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like McCune Heating & Cooling. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a few 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 normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part 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 cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 arranging routine maintenance appointments with McCune Heating & Cooling. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 316-469-7994 to arrange your appointment.
