The noises could also be an sign that larger repairs are required. If you know how to talk about the sounds your system is making, you can help your service specialist create a solution.

  • Repetitive clicking—You can hear a clicking sound when your system turns on and off, if you listen well. This is routine. However, if you hear this sound frequently, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to find out if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
