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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it usually makes. For the most part, they should fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like PWA Heating & Cooling Inc. Your system could simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that signify 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 carefully. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, 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 component. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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