Is your furnace so loud it’s keeping you up at night? There are a number of reasons your furnace or heating system is making loud noises. It is important to address these situations with an HVAC professional immediately so that an untimely heating system breakdown does not occur.

Whistling Noises

One noise a furnace can make is a whistling noise. This often occurs when there is an issue with the filter. The filter may be clogged, causing the furnace to attempt to suck in air any place it can. An easy solution to this is to replace the filter. Oftentimes, a homeowner is able to replace the filter on their own. However, if you are ever unsure, contact the professionals at Amber Heating & Air Conditioning. One of our technicians would be happy to swing by and replace the filter on your heating system.

Rattling Noise

If you hear a rattling or vibrating noise coming from your heating system, a loose duct may be to blame. Inspect your furnace for any loose parts or ducts. You can alleviate this noise by screwing in any loose screws, adding additional screws or fixing with duct tape. Your furnace may also be on uneven ground. Call a professional like Amber Heating & Air Conditioning if this is the case. Do not try to lift or place anything under the furnace, as you may do more damage than good. Call 1-800-592-6237 for any furnace maintenance or repairs.

Banging Sound

If there is a banging noise when the furnace starts up, there may be a weak spot in the ductwork. This situation is called oil canning. The solution to this is getting more support to the weak spot in the ductwork. A HVAC professional is needed to replace the piece of weak metal with a new piece. This should solve the banging sound issue.
