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 fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Air Houston Mechanical LLC. Your system could simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that imply 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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