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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Strine's Heating & A/C Inc. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Strine's Heating & A/C Inc.
