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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Central Air Inc. Your system could simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some common 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you definitely 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 part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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