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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain range of sounds that they regularly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Rescue Heating & Air . You may find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to describe the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue 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 Rescue Heating & Air . We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 361-265-4371 to arrange your appointment.
