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. Most times, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in professionals like Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are needed. 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 common sounds that signify 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 hard. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you likely 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 hints at a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is totally broken or disconnected.

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