Furnace Noises and What They Mean

Has your furnace ever made a strange noise? There could be several reasons why your furnace is making noises. If you hear a whistling noise coming from your return air duct, that could be because of a dirty air filter. If your furnace is experiencing vibrations, squealing, and grinding noises, this can be a sign of a motor bearing issue. If popping or banging noises are coming from your furnace, this may be a sign of high heat rise.


Heat rise can lead to cracks and expansion within the heat exchangers, which can lead to a leak of CO in your home. If you are experiencing any of these furnace-related issues, make sure to call a technician to source and fix the problem.


Another potential cause of strange noises is running your furnace without a filter. Air filters prevent dust, hair, and lint from building up in the evaporator coil. A dirty coil restricts airflow in the system and can also lead to high heat rise if you’re not regularly cleaning it.


Often when the furnace fan begins to make noise, it’s because dirt has built up around the blower wheels. These wheels will need to be removed and cleaned to prevent overheating, and if left unattended, this could lead to the fan breaking down. Sometimes, selecting the wrong furnace fan speed can also be the source of strange noises.


It’s best practice to schedule a regular maintenance routine of your furnace to stop strange noises and ensure it is running smoothly.
