Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like H & H Service Company. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.
Here are some of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
