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. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc. Your system could simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that imply 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 repeatedly, 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 means a loose piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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