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 consistently make, but they should not be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making unusual sounds, it typically 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 Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it may also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to talk about the sounds your system is making might help the heating and cooling service technician zero in on the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component 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 routine. However, if you’re hearing this sound over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s a problem with the system’s relay or its electrical control.

You can prevent some of these noises from ever beginning by setting up regular maintenance appointments with Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services. We can highlight and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 575-446-3948 to set up your appointment.
