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

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, 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 an expert for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Cool Air Solutions. Your system might simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are required. 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 familiar sounds that signify 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 well. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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