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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a few 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
