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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Rim Country Mechanical, Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may 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 turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
