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. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc. Your system could simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely 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. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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