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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual 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 Farnell Mechanical, Inc.. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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 usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
