Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.
Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
