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. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Your system may simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out 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 natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.
