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


Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Climate Control Systems. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check 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 arranging routine maintenance appointments with Climate Control Systems. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 828-283-0369 to arrange your appointment.
