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 fade into the background. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a certified technician for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Northern Comfort Inc. Your system might simply have a disconnected part. The noises could also be an signal that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you definitely 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 hints at a loose part. Louder 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 beginning.
