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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Main Heating & Cooling, Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Main Heating & Cooling, Inc..
