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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Cool Air Solutions. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

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