7 Types of Furnace Noises
A fully functioning furnace is quiet and should be unnoticeable when it’s in use. Some noise is normal—a pop or click when it first turns on, and a dull hum as it works. Older furnaces can emit more noise than newer ones. But none of these noises should be disruptive to your family. If your furnace is making any one of the following noises, it’s time to get a professional heating technician to help.
1. Grinding or Scraping Sounds
Hearing a grinding or scraping sound? This could mean dry bearings within the blower motor. Regularly lubricating these bearings will ensure the furnace is properly maintained.
2. Rumbling Noises
If you hear a loud rumbling sound after a heating cycle is complete, this is a sign that fuel is continuing to burn in the combustion chamber. This could lead to serious complications to the burners, flame sensors, and pilot light. It also increases the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, which is why it is so important to be aware of these unusual noises and what they mean. We offer reliable heating repair services for malfunctioning furnaces in areas such as Jersey City, Pomona, Paterson, Haverstraw, and Newark. Our team will perform an inspection of your heating system to confirm the source of the strange noises. We will fix the damaged components to eliminate rumbling noises in your system.
3. Squealing Sounds
Various issues with the blower motor can cause that squealing noise you’re hearing. One common cause is a loose belt, but there could be other issues at play.
4. Thumping Noises
Thumping sounds are a sign of an unbalanced motor or blower wheel. These are two major furnace parts, so get this checked out by a professional for repair right away.
5. Popping or Banging Sounds
You might hear pops or bangs when the furnace begins a cycle. Warm air hitting the cold metal of the air ducts expands and makes the sound. If the pops are louder, the burners might be dirty. This simple explanation can lead to a bigger problem if left unattended. Gas can accumulate and could crack the heat exchanger and requires your furnace to be repaired.
6. Humming Noises
Louder than usual humming can indicate an issue with the fan or capacitor. Your furnace is supposed to hum as it runs, but keep an ear open for it being louder than usual or hearing it when the furnace is off.
7. Clicking Sounds
Clicking is normal when the furnace turns on and off, but not during the cycle. This can mean there’s an issue with the compressor or control panel.

3 Types of Heat Pump Problems
The three main problems we encounter with heat pumps include:
1. Heat Pump Does Not Run
If your heat pump is not working, it could be a power issue. Make sure it’s receiving power by checking the socket is switched on. It could also be a blown fuse. If this is the case, simply reset or replace the fuse. Alternatively, it could be your thermostat. Your thermostat might need adjustment or it might need to be replaced.
2. Not Heating or Cooling Correctly
If your thermostat is set to the temperature you want and your heat pump is not working, check the vent cover. If this is closed, it will prevent air circulation. A blocked air duct will also prevent proper heating and cooling. You also want to make sure the coils are clean because dirt can accumulate and clog the coils. Our technicians offer credible heating repair services for broken heat pump systems in areas such as Newark, Sloatsburg, Tom’s River, Haverstraw, Jersey City, and Pomona. Our team will disassemble and analyze your heat pump to determine why it is not heating or cooling your home correctly. 3. Blower Not Working A broken belt could prevent the heat pump blower from functioning. It’s difficult to repair a broken belt so buying a new one will ensure that the connection between the pump blower and the motor is functioning. Alternatively, your heat pump might be frozen due to harsh weather conditions. You might need to defrost the condenser unit.
If your boiler needs repair or a tune-up, look no further. We will inspect, adjust, and test your boiler to make sure it is working properly. Getting your boiler tuned up can prevent breakdowns and costly repairs down the road and overall maximizes its lifespan.
