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

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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

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