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

May 04, 2017

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

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Clean Air HVAC. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. 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 professional create 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 carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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.
