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


Heating and cooling systems all have a certain number of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making strange sounds, it typically indicates that it should have heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in pros like B&W Services. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it might also be a sign that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a few 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 broken part, louder banging or thumping sounds might 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 flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely 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 arranging routine maintenance appointments with B&W Services. We can highlight and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 972-695-2264 to set up your appointment.
