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

Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making strange or disruptive sounds, you should call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen thoroughly to the things you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like McCune Heating & Cooling. Your system may simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are necessary. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify 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 natural. 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 means a loose part. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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