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. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Airmen HVAC Service. 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 describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that imply 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you likely 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 means a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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