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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service session.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp.. Your system could simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional 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 routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely 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 hints at a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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