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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
