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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like J.L. Brady Company LLC. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns 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 check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
