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 regularly make, but they should not 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 professionals like McFadden Heating & Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may 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 troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some 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 loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
