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

Your system has a array of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Heartland Heating & Cooling. Your system might simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an signal that larger 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 easy to identify 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely 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 indicates a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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