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

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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that show 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 may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • 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 repeatedly, you probably 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 beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing.
