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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like Central Heating & Plumbing. Your system may simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify 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 well. This is routine. 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 means a loose component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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