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 go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist figure out a solution.

Here are some common 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 carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably 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 component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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