Did You Hear That?
Learn the Haunting Reason Why Your Unit’s Making That Noise
Legend has it that on Halloween the veil between the living and the dead is lifted. With these two dissociated worlds free to intertwine, everyday situations assume an eerier twist.
As nights take on an even darker side, your mind can play tricks on you. You’ll see and hear things that aren’t there. However, it’s important that you retain a sense of reality, especially when it comes to your home. That’s because when your comfort system needs a repair, it’ll scream—or bang, click, rattle or hiss—to get your attention. The longer you hide from it, the scarier—and more costly—the problem will become.

If you hear one of these sounds, call us right away.
Fear the Big Bang
If you hear banging or clanking, answer the door. It’s your system knocking and it’s dying to tell you that something’s not right with one of its parts. Inside, something is loose, broken or knocked out of balance. And now, this part is hitting other components; the damage is spreading. You must stop it before it’s too late.
Clickity-Clack. Your System’s Out of Whack
If you turn your system on (or off) and you hear clicking, that’s normal. But if this sound lingers, then you’ve got a problem.
It could be that your system’s thermostat is failing. And, if so, watch out. If it’s not fixed, it’ll take your comfort down (or up) with it. It’s also possible your system has an electrical issue. And, this may shock you—literally—but operating a unit with a defective control is hazardous. So, to stop your peace of mind from turning into a headache, call us right away.
Don’t Let a Rattle or Hiss Bite You
Snakes rattle and hiss. Heaters and air conditioners shouldn’t. So, if your system is making these noises, beware. Danger is lurking.
Before you jump to conclusions, make sure sticks and branches aren’t clogging up your system. If all is clear and the sound remains, then listen up. A rattle is a warning sign that your system has a loose part that’s moving around inside or that your unit is deteriorating. And don’t dismiss a hiss. This noise means one of your valves is malfunctioning or there’s an air leak in your ductwork or vents.
Double, Double Toil & (Your System’s Screaming Because It’s in) Trouble
People scream when they’re faced with a frightening situation. Your system works the same way. So, if you hear screaming or a high-pitched whistling coming from your unit, something has gone terribly wrong. Turn your unit off immediately. If it’s your air conditioner, it’s probably a refrigerant leak. Or, it could mean the pressure inside of your compressor is exceedingly high. Either situation is extremely hazardous to you and your family’s safety.
