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 be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen hard to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in pros like B & G HVAC. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. 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 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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