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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are some of the more common 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 might mean a component 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
