Why Is My Furnace Making Noises?
A noisy furnace, while annoying, can be scary. Your furnace shouldn’t be making any unusual noises. This may indicate there’s something wrong … aside from the sounds keeping you up at night.
Sounds you may hear from your furnace like a loud thumping noise, which could be an unbalanced blower wheel, to an annoying, high-pitched squeal, which may just indicate a lack of lubricant. Some are quick fixes, while others may take longer and require a professional Bluffton heating contractor.
Furnace issues rarely share a cause and are as individual as snowflakes. This means each and every noise can be pinpointed to specific parts in your furnace. To figure out why you’re hearing a particular noise all you need is some information.
Never ignore strange sounds from your furnace because they could be an alert to serious problems that could end up costing you a lot of money.
Remember to schedule an annual maintenance checkup to make sure your furnace is running at peak performance the entire cold season.
