During the cold winter months in the Vegas Valley, we all prefer the warm comforts of our homes. Unfortunately, we ignore the haunting sounds of protest our furnace makes when you are caught up in these comforts. Because repairs can be a troublesome, when they start making an odd sound, it is easy to deny that something may be amiss with our heaters. Your furnace can suffer more and more if you neglect the noises when they first start. Being something as mild as an easy-to-fix loose panel or being something severe that leads to a hazardous carbon monoxide leak due it is a cracked heat exchanger, rattling sounds has a range of issues for instance. In the event hear anything outside of the normal cycling of your furnace and air rustling through your vents, you need to contact a licensed professional. To help offer more understanding on the furnace sounds, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to discuss the common sounds a furnace makes that requires an expert.
Furnace Squealing Noise
Loud screeching noises are a symptom of blower motor in your furnace not working as it should. Because of a malfunctioning or broken blower motor, the warm air produced by your furnace won’t circulate efficiently around your living space. Generally, lubricating the blower motor appropriately is the simple fix, however, to ensure the problem is properly identified you need an expert. You need a professional HVAC technician visits your home in order to get a proper diagnosis and once diagnosed, the expert can make sure the repairs are done right.
Rattling Sound in Furnace Vents
As we mentioned something as simple as a loose panel that needs to be tightened can be making the rattling noises, however, there are other faults. The cause of the rattle, for example, can be from a broken heat exchanger. A dirty and clogged up air filter causing lack of air flow or an issue with your blower can be making the rattling noises. A professional attention right away, no matter this issue, is required for both the heater’s performance and for your safety.
Furnace Making Loud Banging Noise
Often when you hear the clanking sound that resembles metal-on-metal, that’s exactly what it is. Usually the source of the noise is a serious problem with the furnace’s blower wheel. You need to turn off your furnace and contact a licensed technician immediately if this is the case in order to prevent further damage to the wheel. With this, like most, the longer you wait, the more it will cost to repair.
Furnace Boom Sound
The general cause for the booming you hear from the furnace is a burner that is dirty. It can be very hazardous, though it may sound nonthreatening. The sound you’re hearing is caused by a delay in ignition that due to dirt and build-up. When it ignites, a small explosion occurs inside the furnace due to the system building with gas. The furnace can lead to these subsequent problems if in the process rattles a cracked heat exchangers and carbon monoxide leaks. It is highly recommended that you do not clean the burner yourself since there is too much room for error that can lead to costly consequences. Especially when you are dealing with natural gas, it is in your better interest to call in a professional.
