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. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Your system could simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some common 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 again and again, you probably 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 piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
