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. For the most part, they should fade into the background. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like True Home Heating and Air Conditioning. Your system could simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 means a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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