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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully 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 disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are required. 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 signify 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 part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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