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

Your system has a set of sounds that it usually makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Stieferman Heating Company Inc. Your system may simply have a loose 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 technician work out a solution.

Here are some common 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 well. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 means a loose piece. Louder 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 appear.
