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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign 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 understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
