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. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Jett's Heating & Air Inc.. Your system might simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that imply 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 check out 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. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

Routine maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
