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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also indicate 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 possible causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning.
