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

Your system has a array of sounds that it usually makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc.. Your system could simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an indication that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that signify a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive 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 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 piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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