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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like House of Heating Incorporated. Your system might simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are required. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check out if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—Rattling usually indicates a loose piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
