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

Your system has a set of sounds that it usually makes. Most times, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Wallpe Heating & Cooling. Your system might simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are needed. 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 common sounds that signify 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 definitely 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 indicates a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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