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

<< Blog Home


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

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like Abilene Air-Tech Inc. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.

Here are some of the more normal sounds that highlight a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you probably 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 arranging normal maintenance appointments with Abilene Air-Tech Inc. We can identify and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at (325) 692-5850 to arrange your appointment.
