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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Quality Refrigeration. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically 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 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 repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
