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 regularly makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Comfort Zone Inc. Your system may simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Continual 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 probably 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 hints at a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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