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. 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 appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like George Home Services. Your system may simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 means a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
