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

Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger 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 a couple of the more routine sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential 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 busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning.
