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 usually makes. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe 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:

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen hard. 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 indicates a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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