Should I Be Concerned About Furnace Noises? An Atlanta Heating Question

Return to the Blog Home Page

A lot of homeowners think that the noises that their furnace makes are normal or just something that happens now and again. However, it is important to keep in mind that any irregularities with the operation of your furnace should be considered cause enough to contact your professional service provider in Atlanta. Even if the sounds that your furnace makes turn out to be no big deal, you will have the peace of mind that you need to heat your home confidently. Consider the information below, and call Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning with any questions you may still have.

If you hear a deep sounding rumble coming from your furnace it may be the result of a dirty burner or pilot light that needs to be adjusted. Any problems or irregularities with any such component must be addressed by a professional service provider immediately. If you use natural gas to operate your furnace you must be certain that that equipment is in perfect working condition and that the combustion process is not compromised. Call for help right away if you suspect a problem of this type with your furnace.

Any screeching or squealing sounds are probably less serious than the above situation, but still must be handled professionally to prevent damage to your furnace. A fan belt may have slipped or some moving parts may be in need of lubricant. If any moving part of your furnace is under unnecessary stress the whole system’s condition and efficiency is put at risk, along with your comfort.

Continuous rattling or banging coming from your furnace most likely indicates that something in the blower has worked itself loose. If you want to keep your home comfortable efficiently this must be repaired right away. Only a professional can ensure the proper operation of your furnace and all its components.
