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 unusual or disruptive sounds, you should call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician figure out a solution.

Here are some common sounds that signify 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 hard. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably 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 means a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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