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

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

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in experts like Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are some of the more common sounds that show 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 may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever showing up by arranging normal maintenance appointments with Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 979-323-6130 to set up your appointment.
