Your system has a collection of sounds that it normally makes. All in all, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service visit.
Listen thoroughly to the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning. Your system could simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an indication that larger repairs are required. If you know how to define the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist 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 normal. However, if you hear this sound again and again, you definitely 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 indicates a loose piece. Louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your system is completely broken or disconnected.
