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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, 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 visit.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. Your system could simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar 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 probably 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 component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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