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

Your system has a array of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like House of Heating Incorporated. Your system could simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about 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:

  • Continual clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you definitely 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 means a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

Routine maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever starting.
