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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like GV Heating & Air. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

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

  • Repeated clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 means a loose component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
