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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service session.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. Your system could simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you likely 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 piece. Strong 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 starting.
