Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like J.L. Brady Company LLC. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.
Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that indicate 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 could mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
