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


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging routine maintenance appointments with American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 818-275-0897 to make your appointment.
