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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like B & G HVAC. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a couple 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 typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
