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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Jett's Heating & Air Inc.. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their potential 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 closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
