May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. Most times, 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 noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system could simply have a loose item inside. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist figure out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that signify 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 carefully. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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 piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
