Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Knoechel Heating Company. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.
Here are a few of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 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.
