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 noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Luikart Heating & Cooling. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.
Here are a few 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 busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips 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 check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
