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. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like Air-Right Energy Design, Inc.. Your system might simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that signify 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 likely 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 indicates a loose piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

Regular maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
