Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it should have a heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system, and call-in experts like Temp Air System Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.
Here are some of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking, or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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.
