Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.
Here are some of the more routine sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
