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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Superior Comfort Systems. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece 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 flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Superior Comfort Systems.
