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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Aireforce Heating & Air Inc. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator 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 concern.

Here are a few of the more common sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 arranging regular maintenance appointments with Aireforce Heating & Air Inc.
