Why is My Furnace Making Funny Noises?

Feb 8, 2021 | Furnace, Heating, HVAC

When heating or cooling equipment is working as it should, it’s easy to take it for granted. During the summer months, cooled air is crucial. During the winter, heat is vital for your safety. Unfortunately, sometimes HVAC airflow issues can cause a unit to break down. Taking the time to maintain your HVAC system helps prolong the lifetime of your unit and save you money in the long run. To help you understand why your system might be having airflow problems, we at Blue Ash Furnace & Air Conditioning composed the following.


Air Filters Need to be Replaced

Dirty air filters are one of the most preventable reasons for HVAC airflow problems. A dirty filter can reduce your home’s airflow and cause problems with your HVAC system. During the summer, your air conditioner is always running. So you need to change your filter every month. During the cold season, you should replace it monthly as well, or every other month. Depending on your circumstances and whether you have furry pets or carpeting, you might need to change it more often than that. While cheaper filters cost less upfront, they usually need to be replaced more frequently.
Problems in Ductwork
Unless you have a ductless system, air ducts are responsible for transporting the air to all of your rooms. Because they can develop small gaps or cracks over time, this can enable air to leak out. This affects the amount of airflow they are able to deliver into your rooms. One of our professionals can examine your ductwork if you suspect this is the case. In some situations, narrow ducts could be clogged and merely cleaned to resolve the problem. In other cases, the ductwork may truly need professional help.

Wear and Tear

Over the years of faithful service, HVAC equipment develops wear and tear that can cause airflow problems or even cause overheating. Be on the lookout for the signs that your system may be declining. If the problem isn’t something you can pinpoint on your own, or you can pinpoint it and it requires a professional hand, give us a call. Don’t waste your time with second-rate repair people who aren’t NATE-certified.
