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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain set of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the concern.

Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part 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 flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
