6 Spooky Sounds That Haunted Furnaces Make-and Why


Frenchtown, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/17/2018 -- The most popular haunted houses feature plenty of scary sound effects: haunting music, creaking doors, squeaking floors, rattling chains and howling ghouls.

Of course, it's all in good fun. But it's never any fun when a family's peace and quiet are disturbed by creepy noises, especially when the sounds are loud enough to wake the dead. Sometimes, the source of the ruckus is the heating system. That's when it's time to call the cool techs at Air Professionals. They'll glide on over and exorcise the demons with top-shelf furnace repair service in Bridgewater or exceptional furnace replacement in Hillsborough.

Avoid the monsters in the HVAC industry that use pushy sales tactics. The team at Air Professionals doesn't believe in that type of snow job. They'll never try to talk you into a costlier furnace replacement when a sensible furnace repair makes the most sense. Air Professionals also offers a money-saving heating maintenance plan that provides thorough system checkups and total peace of mind.

Here are six common sounds heating systems make and possible causes:

Banging or popping: Air ducts sometimes bang or pop when they expand and contract. Minor popping is nothing to worry about. Loud and persistent banging or popping should be checked by a professional technician.

Screeching: This is often a motor bearing problem. A faulty belt can also make a screeching noise. Faulty belts need to be fixed to prevent the blower from shutting down.

Scraping: Scraping sounds occur when the blower wheel is loose or broken. The cool techs at Air Professionals can calm these evil spirits.

"Thwapping": Something could be stuck in the blower blades or inside the furnace housing. It places a terrible strain on the motor and needs to be fixed before the furnace breaks down completely.

Humming: A quiet humming is part of the normal operation of some units. But homeowners should call Air Professionals to find the cause of unexpected or unusually loud humming.

Ice, snow, freezing temperatures and whipping winds are just around the corner. Contact Air Professionals today to schedule an appointment for a furnace checkup. A well-planned visit now will help prevent the need for unexpected furnace repair service in Bridgewater or a surprise furnace replacement in Hillsborough in the bitter cold months go come.
