Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Central Heating & Plumbing. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.
Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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.
