How to Tell Your Heating and Cooling Service Provider What Sound Your System is Making

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C.. Your system might simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are required. 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 easy to identify 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 carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 hints at a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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