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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally indicates 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
