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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Rescue Heating & Air . Your system may simply have a loose piece. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are needed. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that signify a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive 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 repeatedly, you definitely 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 hints at a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.
