Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.
Here are a couple of the more common sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
