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 usually makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Dearing's Service & Solutions. Your system may simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 well. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 means a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
