Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it usually indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in professionals like I-Deal HVAC. You could find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.
Here are a few of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, 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 repeatedly, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
