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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Farris Heating & Air. Your system could simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 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 means a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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