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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like James Heating & A/C, Inc. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a few 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 broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by setting up routine maintenance appointments with James Heating & A/C, Inc.
