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. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. Your system may simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an indication that major repairs are needed. 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 common 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 carefully. 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 hints at a loose piece. 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 beginning.
