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

Your system has a array of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, they should fade into the background. 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 pros like Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a broken part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some common 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 hard. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—Rattling usually means a loose piece. Intense 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 beginning.
