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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange 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 Summit Air Conditioning Inc. Your system may simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist figure out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that signify 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 carefully. 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 part. Strong 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 starting.
