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. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Colvin's Heating and Cooling. Your system may simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an indication that major repairs are needed. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 carefully. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably 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 component. Intense 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.
