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. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Solar Air Inc. . Your system might simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some common 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 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. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.
