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 constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Thornberry Bros Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about 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 normal 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
