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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it might also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken 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 normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up normal maintenance appointments with Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 800-COOLING or use our convenient online scheduler to arrange your appointment.
