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

Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Campbell's Tempracure. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be an indicator that it needs a bigger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece 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 turns 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 showing up by scheduling regular maintenance appointments with Campbell's Tempracure.
