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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally indicates 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 professionals like McNatt Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may 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 repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
