As the temperature gets colder, your furnace runs longer. If you’re one of the many people who suffer from a noisy furnace, you may have noticed that already.
You can hear the click and constant humming, rattling and screeching once your furnace turns on, and the longer it runs, the more annoying it becomes. Things like this can be easy to get used to but once you notice it, it’s hard to forget.
You may think you’re stuck with your noisy furnace, but you’re not.
An abnormally loud furnace can affect not only your comfort but your bank account too. An increase in the noise level of your furnace’s operation often means that there is some kind of inefficiency within the system. Depending on the age and fit of your home, here are some potential solutions to your noise problems:
- Part repair
- System adjustments
- Add-on equipment to decrease workload
- Full system or part replacement
Much of these issues stem from a lack of equipment maintenance. Proper maintenance and adjustments to your system by a trained professional will help your equipment operate closer to its original state. Therefore, having your system checked and cleaned regularly means that you’ll be able to spot where parts begin to fail and where your machine has to compensate for them. You’ll also be able to get to the root of why these parts began to fail in the first place and adjust your home comfort system and settings accordingly.
Inadequately designed ducting, high pressure drops due to dirty AC coils, plugged filters or other ducting blockages can add to the sound your HVAC system makes. Often, when replacing or repairing your system we spot troublesome bottlenecks that were built into the original system. Our in home comfort consultants will recommend the appropriate changes. The best part is, at Delta Air Systems, we have our own sheet metal shop, so we design personalized ducts for your home with high quality metal galvanized steel that is properly sized for equipment and load.
If you want to get rid of noisy ducts altogether, you could also consider a ductless system.
