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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like Air Quality Solutions. Your system could simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, 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 indicates a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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