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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Energy Upgrades, Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate 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 zero in on the concern.

Here are a couple 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 Energy Upgrades, Inc..
