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. For the most part, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen carefully to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. Your system may simply have a disconnected piece. 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 professional work out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repeated 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 again and again, you likely 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. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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