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 usually makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Durable Service . Your system may simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are required. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that signify 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 means a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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