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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a array of sounds that it usually makes. For the most part, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Street Heating and Cooling. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 again and again, you probably 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 hints at a loose piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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