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 don’t need to be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it normally highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in experts like ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to pass along 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 show a need for heating and cooling service and their potential causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling typically indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become unattached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system turns on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to identify 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 ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 337-335-0992 to set up your appointment.
