Heating Noises You Should Be Wary of

Monday, March 9th, 2020

Heaters aren’t supposed to be noisy—full stop. If heaters normally functioned noisily, then it would be a lot harder to sell them to customers, right? While never silent, a proper furnace or heat pump should run quietly, since the process of creating or moving heat into your home shouldn’t necessarily involve anything noisy. Even an aging system that’s reaching the end of its lifespan should by no means keep you up at night with noises.

Sometimes furnace issues come up and homeowners will fiddle around with a system that they don’t know much about. Whether or not the heat comes back on doesn’t exactly mean that the issue is solved. For instance, you’d be surprised by how many homeowners realize that their heat isn’t working because the thermostat isn’t on, but after they turn it back on they don’t investigate the root of the problem—why was it off in the first place?

Today we’re going to talk about some furnace issues that might be easy to fix from a homeowner’s standpoint, but that doesn’t mean they’re over and done with. Many problems that might occur have reoccurring consequences that could haunt an underestimating victim.

Heating Tip: Signs of Furnace Problems

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

A high quality, professional installation and regular preventive maintenance service can keep the furnace in your Raleigh home operating very efficiently and effectively for years to come. Along the way, though, you are bound to notice a problem or two with your furnace. No mechanical system is perfect, and even impeccably serviced furnaces have issues every now and then. Some furnace problems are more serious than others, and you should always contact a professional service provider if you suspect trouble with your furnace. At Raleigh Heating & Air, though, we still believe it is good for homeowners to have some basic information about common furnace problems.

One of the most obvious problems that your furnace may exhibit is a lack of effective heating power. There are a number of factors that may cause this problem. Not all of them even have to do with the furnace itself. For instance, your thermostat may not be reading the temperature in your home accurately. This will cause it to regulate temperatures improperly. Your ductwork could also be inefficient, damaged or otherwise compromised, allowing heated air to escape or lose energy before reaching its destination.

It is very likely that at some point you will notice some odd noises coming from your furnace. Again, there are a number of possible causes of this issue, and only a professional service technician can diagnose it with certainty. It may be a problem with a slipped fan belt, an issue with ball bearings or you may just need the moving parts of your furnace lubricated. The only thing you can be certain of is that running a furnace that is in need of repair will eventually damage the system.

If your pilot light keeps going out, you should call for professional help immediately. It may just be that you have a faulty sensor or thermocouple that needs to be replaced. This issue may also indicate a dangerous gas leak, though. A professional technician will be able to ensure the safe operation of your furnace.
