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

Your system has a set of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc.. Your system could simply have a loose piece. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are needed. 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 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 hard. This is routine. 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 hints at a loose component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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