Your heating system should generally be out of sight and out of mind. If your heater produces an unsettling sound, check out the following suggestions as to the possible causes. Anything that stands out as out of the normal could be sign of something going wrong.

Scraping noises

You might perceive some thumping or scraping noises coming from inside your heating system. If you fear you might experience this issue, then it’s the ideal time to schedule your heating repairs with Wally Falkes. These noises could indicate that the blower wheel has shifted out of place, which may harm your HVAC system. Turn off the heating system and contact Wally Falkes if you notice these noises.

If you are experiencing rattling or shaking coming from your furnace, it is probably due to a loose part. Although it is usually an easy fix, schedule furnace maintenance to ensure that all screws and fasteners are correctly tightened, so there’s no rattling.

Whistling

We hear frequent reports of whistling or high-pitched squealing noises emanating from the furnace. This is usually due to duct work issues. The first step is to change your filter. Changing your filter can have countless benefits for HVAC systems, including quieter operation. If this doesn’t make a difference, you could have some cracks in your vent work or ducts.

Popping and Tapping

Finally, some people hear a popping or tapping sound coming from the heat pump during the fall and winter. What they’re hearing is refrigerant leaking out of it. It is necessary to repair the refrigerant leak. If left unchecked by the leak could get worse and more costly to repair
