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


Heating and cooling systems all have a regular number of sounds that they consistently make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even audible. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually means that it needs heating and cooling service.

Take note of the sounds you’re hearing, turn off your system and call in experts like Gordon Air Conditioning. You could find that your system simply has a broken part, but it could also be an indicator that it needs a larger repair. Recognizing how to pass along the sounds your system is making will help the heating and cooling service technician understand the issue.

Here are a couple of the more common 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 might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely broken or become disconnected.
  • Repetitive clicking—If you listen carefully, 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 repeatedly, you probably need a heating and cooling service appointment to determine 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 Gordon Air Conditioning. We can find and repair a number of problems before they become bigger. Just give us a call at 850-250-0335 to set up your appointment.
