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

Your system has a array of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, 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 an expert for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Woody's Sudden Service Inc. Your system could simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create 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 again and again, you likely 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 indicates a loose piece. 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.
