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 normally makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Goode Bros AC & Heating. Your system may simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. 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 familiar sounds that imply 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 probably 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 hints at a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
