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


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular range of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like A2Z Air Inc. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a few 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 normally indicates a broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a component 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 flips on and off. This is normal. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify if it’s an issue with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by setting up routine maintenance appointments with A2Z Air Inc. We can identify and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 561-270-6228 to set up your appointment.
