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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually 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 session.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Air Alliance Team. Your system might simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably 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 indicates a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
