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 usually makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you should call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Age Heating & Cooling. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some common 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 hard. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably 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 hints at a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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