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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a set of sounds that it normally makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in a professional for a service appointment.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like Titan Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system could simply have a disconnected piece. The noises could also be an signal that major repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional work out a solution.

Here are some familiar sounds that imply 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you definitely 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 indicates a loose part. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
