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

Service

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Twin Air LLC. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible 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 busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
