Your system has a array of sounds that it usually makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service visit.
Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in professionals like Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system may simply have a broken item inside. The noises could also be an sign that major repairs are needed. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service technician work out a solution.
Here are some easy to identify sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service:
- Repeated 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 again and again, 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 means a loose component. Strong banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.
