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


Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they consistently make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Cool Power LLC . You might find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are a couple of the more normal 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 could mean a component 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 routine. 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.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Cool Power LLC . We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 631-246-4029 to set up your appointment.
