If your mechanical equipment is banging, shuddering when it turns off, vibrating, making thumping sounds or leaking water- well you need to get off a call to your HVAC company you trust, or quickly start your search for a service company you trust – you have something seriously wrong OR on the verge of breaking down.
More odd sounds are puffing or the sound of pressure going out… anything odd.
