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 normally makes. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. Your system could simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 carefully. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely 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 piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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