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 usually makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you should call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Airtronic Heating & Cooling. Your system may simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 carefully. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely 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 indicates a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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