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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like ACS Inc. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • 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 potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
