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 audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually highlights that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Air Max HVAC 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 pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted 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 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 over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
