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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Bon Air Service Company. Your system may simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some common 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 natural. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you probably 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 indicates a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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