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 consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like Paso Robles Heating and Air. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot 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 normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
