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 normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are a couple 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 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 closely, 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 repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
