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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular 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 needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Pinnacle HVAC LLC. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
