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

Your system has a set 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 professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling. Your system may simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some common sounds that imply a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Continual 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 again and again, you definitely 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 means a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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