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

Your system has a array of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Scott Temperature. Your system may simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are needed. 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 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 means a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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