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

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen carefully to the noises you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like US Air Heating and Cooling. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are required. 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 indicate a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen well. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, 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 means a loose component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
