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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Beck Cohen. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken 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 flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
