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 strange or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 hard. 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 means a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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