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

May 04, 2017


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like North Mechanical Heating and Cooling. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with North Mechanical Heating and Cooling. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 928-263-8570 to set up your appointment.
