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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Garoken Energy Co. Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are a few 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 normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted 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 normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
