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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Service Plus Mechanical. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on 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 usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Service Plus Mechanical.
