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 regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Knoechel Heating Company. You could find that your system simply has a loose 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 routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • 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 over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
