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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a certified technician for a service session.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like JTech Mechanical. Your system could simply have a loose piece. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that indicate 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 well. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound frequently, 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 hints at a loose component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

Routine maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever appear.
