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

Your system has a set of sounds that it usually makes. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system may simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that imply 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 normal. 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 hints at a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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