Why Is My Furnace Making Noise?

Here at Bryant's Heating & Cooling, we pride ourselves in not only meeting all of your furnace needs but also answering all of your furnace-related questions. Is your furnace making noise? This is a disconcerting issue, but it’s nothing that we haven’t encountered before in Fort Wayne. Here are some of the most common furnace noises and just what could be causing them.

My Furnace Is Making Banging Noises

If your furnace has banging noises, it could mean that your furnace has encountered a small explosion that is causing it to clog or have a gas pressure problem. This usually happens because your furnace now has gas being built up in the combustion chamber, causing it to make that disturbing racket.

My Furnace Has a Shrieking Noise

If you hear a high-pitched shrieking noise coming from your furnace, it might indicate a problem with your motor. This might mean that you have a damaged belt. In this case, the sooner you call a technician, the better. If caught early, this can be fixed with the correct tools.

My Furnace Has Rattling or Rumbling Noises

This would generally mean that something is loose in your furnace, and it is causing a vibration. It could be a hot surface ignitor, the blower motor, the heat exchanger, or even the gas burners.

My Furnace Has a Whistling Sound

There is no question that a whistling sound can be extremely spooky, but the first thing you should do is check the clogged air filter. Go ahead and change this out and see if that changes the problem. Otherwise, give us a call.

My Furnace Is Making Popping Noises

The popping noises in your furnace most likely mean that you have inflation in your air ducts. You probably have debris in the burners in the form of sediments.
