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 regularly makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. Your system could simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are necessary. 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably 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 part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

Regular maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
