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

May 04, 2017

Your system has a array of sounds that it regularly makes. For the most part, they should go unnoticed. If your system is making bizarre or disruptive sounds, you likely need to call in a professional for a service session.

Listen carefully to the things you’re hearing, switch off your system and call in pros like KDM Service Corporation. Your system may simply have a disconnected item inside. The noises could also be an signal that considerable repairs are required. 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:

  • Repeated clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen well. This is normal. However, if you hear this sound repeatedly, 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 hints at a loose part. Intense banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your system is altogether broken or disconnected.

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