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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning.
