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. Most times, 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 a professional for a service session.

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

Here are some familiar 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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 piece. 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.
