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

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, 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 session.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like McFadden Heating & Cooling. Your system might simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some common 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 carefully. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you probably 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 piece. 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 beginning.
