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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual 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 pros like Dynamic Comfort Solutions. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
