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

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 likely need to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like Local HVAC Repair & Service . Your system might simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 hard. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 hints at a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
