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

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in an expert for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are needed. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional figure out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 repeatedly, you likely 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 hints at a loose piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

Routine maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
