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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. Your system may simply have a loose piece. The noises could also be an indication that major repairs are needed. 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 familiar sounds that signify 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely 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 piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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