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

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 should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Oak Point Heating and Air LLC. Your system might simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are required. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you probably 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. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
