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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part 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 turns 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 determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling.
