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

May 04, 2017

 

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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like AC Sales. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
