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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about 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 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 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 turns on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
