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 noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it normally indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like PWA Heating & Cooling Inc. You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that indicate 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 may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 identify if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by arranging routine maintenance appointments with PWA Heating & Cooling Inc.
