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

Your system has a collection of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, 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 hard to the sounds you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in experts like Toptec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical. Your system might simply have a loose part. The noises could also be an sign that considerable repairs are necessary. If you know how to describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate 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 check 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 component. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

Normal maintenance can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning.
