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

Your system has a collection 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 likely need to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Lycoming Heating Company. Your system may simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 means a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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