Your system has a set of sounds that it regularly makes. All in all, they should fade into the background. If your system is making unusual or disruptive sounds, you probably have to call in a professional for a service session.
Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, shut off your system and call in experts like Patterson & Stirling Inc. 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 describe the sounds your system is making, you can help your service professional create a solution.
Here are some common 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 well. This is natural. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, you probably 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 hints at a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your system is totally broken or disconnected.
