It’s nine O’clock, you’re in bed (hey, it was a long day) and the house is quiet. Suddenly you hear a click and then a subtle noise that gradually gets louder. Is it a screeching? A growling? Or more like a sudden boom that is then gone? Whatever it is, your furnace is not haunted, we promise.
Furnaces, especially older ones, can make a variety of different noises – some of them mean you should get your furnace checked out immediately and some are just normal operation. Here’s a list of a few of the most common scary furnace noises.
You should always get new unusual furnace noises checked out by a heating professional as soon as possible. If the noise is new, something has changed and it could indicate a dangerous condition.
Even if the noise doesn’t reveal danger, it is usually an indication of a problem. If not repaired, the small problem can snowball into a larger repair later on. Of course, the best remedy to scary furnace noises is regular preventative maintenance.
