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

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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • 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 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.
