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 constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Lycoming Heating Company. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that highlight 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 might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
