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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. Your system may simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are needed. 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 signify 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 carefully. 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 means a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

Normal maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
