Heating and cooling systems all have a normal number of sounds that they regularly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically means that it needs heating and cooling service.
Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical. You could find that your system simply has a loose part, but it may also indicate that it needs a bigger repair. Knowing how to describe the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the concern.
Here are some of the more normal sounds that indicate a need for heating and cooling service and their potential 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 broken or become detached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 again and again, you likely 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 TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical. We can highlight and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 847-362-0262 to set up your appointment.
