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


Heating and cooling systems all have a normal set of sounds that they constantly make, but they should not be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making strange sounds, it normally highlights that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like KDM Service Corporation. You might find that your system simply has a broken part, but it may also indicate that it needs a major repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician troubleshoot the issue.

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

  • Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling usually indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds may mean a piece of your heating and cooling system has completely busted or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen attentively, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system cycles 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 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 scheduling routine maintenance appointments with KDM Service Corporation. We can find and repair possible problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 205-208-8090 to make your appointment.
