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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Wolfe & Sons Inc. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips 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 something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
