Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Edington Heating & Cooling Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.
Here are some of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
