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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • 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 over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Assured Appliance and Heating & Air.
