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

Your system has a array of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Street Heating and Cooling. Your system could simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are needed. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some common 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you definitely 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 piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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