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 audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it typically highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like Nisair Air Conditioning. You may find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.

Here are some of the more routine sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably 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 scheduling normal maintenance appointments with Nisair Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 772-318-4252 to set up your appointment.
