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. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Air Temperature Control. Your system might simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are needed. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that signify 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you definitely 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 piece. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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