How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC. Your system could simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen hard. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you definitely 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 part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.
