Having issues with your Noisy Furnace?

When your furnace is having problems, it often tells you by making noises that it didn't make before. If you begin to hear strange noises like screeching, banging or rumbling coming from your furnace, it's a clear sign that something is wrong. If this occurs, you need to check out your furnace as soon as possible to determine what the cause of the noise is. Sometimes it may just be a part that needs oil, such as a bearing or rotor, and this issue can be remedied fairly easily. For more serious problems with complex parts, however, you should consider contacting a heating service professional for help with your noisy furnace.

If you have a furnace in Edmonton that is making a lot of noise, troubleshooting techniques can isolate the source of the problem so you can fix it. For example, if your furnace is making a whining noise, chances are the fan has worn out or is dirty. In some cases, this can be solved by simply wiping down the fan with a rag, but if the fan is too worn, then you may need to replace it altogether.

If, on the other hand, your furnace is squeaking or squealing, you might have an issue with the belt or rotors. The belt could have slipped out of position, meaning that you simply need to readjust it to make the noise go away. If the noise still occurs, though, it could be the bearings; oiling them may be all you need to do.

If you hear noises like rumbling or rattling, other parts of the furnace (such as the pilot light) could be at fault. If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem on your own, that may be the time to get in touch with a professional.
