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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Falls Mechanical Services LLC. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • 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 repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
