Common Heat Pump Noises and What They Mean

During cold winters and hot summers, a heat pump can be an effective heating and air conditioning system for homes in Nevada. Heat pumps don’t necessarily produce heat; rather, they transfer heat from one place to another. This means they can function as both a heating and a cooling unit, depending on the needs of the homeowner.The way a heat pump transfers heat can make for noisy operation, but this normal whirring and buzzing is neither loud nor concerning. If you start to hear odd noises coming from your heat pump that don’t seem to be part of normal operation, however, this may be a sign of trouble brewing under the hood. In this blog post, your HVAC specialists at Sierra Air explain common heat pump sounds and what they’re trying to tell you.
