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 consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Custom Air Systems Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could 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 cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
