When it’s working properly, your furnace should be relatively quiet. Therefore, if you are hearing noises coming from your heating system, there may be trouble. The exact type of noise that you hear could provide key clues as to what the issue may be. Here are some tips that could help.
Why You’re Hearing a Loud Humming or Buzzing Noise
If you are hearing a humming or buzzing noise, there is likely a problem with the blower motor. It may not be properly lubricated or getting enough power to work properly. The professionals at IT Landes in Harleysville can come to your home to repair or replace your existing furnace. This can ensure that a blower motor or other furnace components will work in a safe and efficient manner this winter.
A Part Could Be Loose or Broken
There is a chance that a broken or loose part in the furnace is causing a rattling or other type of loud noise. The problem must be fixed promptly as a loose component could fall off or out of the furnace entirely. Furthermore, broken items may rub against other parts or otherwise force them to work harder to properly heat your home.
An Air Filter May Need to Be Changed
Air filters generally need to be changed every few months to ensure that they don’t clog or that they work to their full potential. When they do clog, it becomes harder for air to pass through them. This may result in a whirring or whistling noise in the furnace or in the ducts nearby. Assuming that a dirty air filter is causing the noise, simply replacing it with a clean one will likely take care of the problem.
