Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates 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 Pliescott HVAC Services LLC . You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.
Here are some 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 usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
