Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Western Mechanical, Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.
Here are a few of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
