Did you know that your home speaks to you? Through the light that shines in through the windows, through the creaks of the floor, the squeaks of the door and the quick snap of a light switch, your home greets you.
But sometimes, its greetings can send a harrowing chill down your spine. When you hear a rapping and tapping through the walls, a screech from your vents, or a hissing noise from your HVAC unit, you may start to wonder if your home is haunted?
This spooky season, if you are hearing your air conditioning unit go bump in the night, don’t cause a fright— call the team at Roland Black Heating and Cooling.
The rapping and tapping noise that’s coming from your HVAC unit could be caused by the system’s compressor. The compressor distributes refrigerant throughout the system and could become loose from the wear and tear it takes on daily. Don’t worry, you’re not in an Edgar Allen Poe story.
Like nails on a chalkboard, screeching noises coming from your air conditioning unit can make your skin crawl. The cause of these screeching noises could be coming from a malfunctioning fan motor in the outdoor condenser unit, a damaged blower fan motor or from damaged bearings in the fan motor. If your heating and cooling unit starts to screech and howl, it’s best to call the heating and cooling experts at Roland Black immediately so we can address the problem.
Are you hearing hissing noises at night? If so, this could be the sign of a leak in your home’s air ducts. These leaks could cause your system to work harder and reduce the air quality in your home. These hissing noises will come back to haunt you with higher energy bills and unwanted temperature fluctuations if not addressed properly.
If you’re hearing these noises or others come from your heating and cooling system, now is the time to schedule your fall tune-up. These preventative maintenance checks can save you time, money and energy down the road—preventing costly breakdowns and giving you peace of mind. Now is the time to make sure that your heating and cooling system can withstand the winter season with a fall tune-up.
Spooky season is officially upon us, but that doesn’t mean you need to be scared when your heating and cooling system goes bump in the night. Whether it’s humming, screeching, hissing or rapping and tapping, the team at Roland Black Heating and Cooling is trained to assess and resolve the problem.
