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


Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 949-204-0859 to arrange your appointment.
