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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Stieferman Heating Company Inc. Your system may simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably 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 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.
