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

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an indication that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe 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:

  • Repeated clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen well. 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 indicates a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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