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

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

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Kowalski Heating & Cooling. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Kowalski Heating & Cooling.
