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


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular set of sounds that they constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in pros like B & B Heating & Cooling. You might find that your system simply has a busted part, but it could also indicate that it needs a major repair. Understanding how to talk about the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a few of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their probable causes:

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a busted part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working 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 regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound repeatedly, 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 beginning by scheduling normal maintenance appointments with B & B Heating & Cooling. We can find and repair potential problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 314-325-7552 to make your appointment.
