Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.
Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Smyth Air Conditioning Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a bigger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the problem.
Here are a couple 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 normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 over and over, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
