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

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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Air Solutions, Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
