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 fade into the background. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Brogan Heating & AC Inc. Your system may simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are needed. 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 carefully. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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 piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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