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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like White Mechanical, Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually 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 detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
