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

Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Forster Heating. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a major repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some 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 normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • 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 again and again, you potentially need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever starting by arranging regular maintenance appointments with Forster Heating. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 530-885-8081 or use our convenient online scheduler to make your appointment.
