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. For the most part, they should be easy to overlook on a day to day basis. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in an expert for a service visit.

Listen hard to the noises you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Ilten's Incorporated. Your system might simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an signal that considerable 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 common sounds that signify a need for heating and cooling service:

  • Repetitive 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 repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to find 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 piece. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.

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