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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a array of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Three Rivers Heating & Cooling. Your system could simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist figure out 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably 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 component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
