A Loud Furnace May Need Repairs

There is nothing better than coming home to a warm, cozy house on a chilly night. Of course, it’s a lot more difficult to enjoy your comfortable surroundings when your furnace is exhibiting signs of duress. The last thing that you want to do is ignore signs of trouble from your furnace. Loud noises should never be overlooked.

All furnaces make some noise when running, of course. However, there is a big difference between the sound of cycling on or blowing heated air through ducts and those alarming sounds we’ll discuss below. If your furnace in Madera, CA is giving you cause for concern, dial our number right away.

  • Banging sounds are among the most common furnace noises you may hear that indicate the potential need for repairs. If your furnace is banging, it’s likely that a component in that furnace has come loose of its securings. When that happens, that component can damage other moving parts in the furnace. You could also have a bent fan blade banging up against the interior of the furnace.
  • Screeching sounds may mean that there is not sufficient lubrication on moving parts in your heating system. Just because your furnace seems to be heating your home successfully does not mean that you can afford to ignore such signs of trouble. The increased friction caused by this problem can lead to more serious damages over time.
  • Booming sounds could indicate that your system is suffering from delayed ignition. This means that more fuel is building up in the combustion chamber than should be, and the resulting combustion is causing this boom. You don’t want to overlook any potential combustion or fuel feeding issues, as these could lead to an unsafe operation.
