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 constantly make, but they shouldn’t be disruptive or really even noticeable. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually indicates that it’s in need of heating and cooling service.

Keep track of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off the system and call in professionals like Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it might also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Knowing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the concern.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds could mean a part of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become detached.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, 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 over and over, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s an issue 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 Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning. We can identify and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 706-722-5304 or use our convenient online scheduler to set up your appointment.
