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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.. You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
