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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp.. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are some of the more common 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 may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. 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.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp..
