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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. Your system may simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that signify 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 routine. 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 component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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