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

May 04, 2017

 

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
