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. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service session.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Your system might simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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