Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it should have heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Cool Air Solutions. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.
Here are some of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
- 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 repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
