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. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Point Heating & Cooling. Your system could simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are needed. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional work out a solution.

Here are some common 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 hints at a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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