When operating properly, your HVAC system will help keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. When properly maintained, it can also ensure that clean air flows through the vents and into the various rooms in your home. If your heating or cooling equipment starts running less optimally, it may emit sounds that indicate there is a problem. What are some HVAC noises that could indicate trouble with heating or cooling components?
1. Repeated Clicking Isn’t Typically Normal
You could hear a clicking noise when your HVAC components turn on and off. However, the sound should only occur once each time that this happens.
If you hear multiple clicks, it could mean that there is an electrical problem. The folks from Econo Air in Brea can maintain, install, and repair both heaters and air conditioners that may have electrical issues. We can also handle any HVAC issues that may arise in a commercial building.
2. A Compressor Fan Is Rattling
If you hear a compressor fan rattling, it could be a sign that something is loose in the unit itself. It may also signal that there is a motor that is not working properly. Ideally, you will call a professional to properly diagnose and fix such a problem.
3. Screeching Noises Could Indicate a Lack of Lubricant
Screeching noises coming from a furnace could indicate that parts are not properly lubricated. A loud pitched noise may also indicate that there is a blower fan or belt that is about to break or stop working properly. While this can be an easy problem to fix, it can turn into a larger problem if not fixed quickly enough.
