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

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Kelley Mechanical. Your system could simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that imply 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check out if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—Rattling usually indicates a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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