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 shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe 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 potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted 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 carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
