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 shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a couple 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 loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 showing up by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc.. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 785-357-6200 to arrange your appointment.
