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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on 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 typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
