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 normally makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like H&C Heating and Cooling. Your system might simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are needed. 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 common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repeated clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen well. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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