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. For the most part, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Total Comfort. Your system may simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional work out a solution.

Here are some common 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 hints at a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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