Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they regularly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in pros like Forster Heating. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the problem.
Here are a couple of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
