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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling. Your system could simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are needed. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely 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 piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

Regular maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever starting.
