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

Your system has a array of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Woody's Sudden Service 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 professional figure out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that signify 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 natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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 part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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