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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Ocean Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a couple of the more common sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece 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 likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Ocean Air Conditioning.
