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 shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights 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 experts like Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely 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 setting up routine maintenance appointments with Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning.
