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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set 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 a certified technician for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Scott Temperature. Your system could simply have a loose item inside. 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 professional figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that imply 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely 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 hints at a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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