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 shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Woody's Sudden Service Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along 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 routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
