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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Anderson Heating & A/C. Your system may simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are required. 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 imply a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Continual clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen carefully. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 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 appear.
