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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen thoroughly to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. Your system may simply have a broken piece. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that indicate 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you definitely 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 hints at a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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