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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like 1st Choice Service Group Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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 usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, 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.
