"Ask Adam" Adam has been in the HVAC industry for over 40 years. He has been involved in all aspects of the business from service to sales. His main interest is in customer comfort. Is Your Furnace Noisy? Adam Kern, Owner Official Heating & Cooling If your house is being heated with a boiler then you probably don't even know when it is running. Hydronic heating is definitely the quietest heating system (with the exception of electric baseboard). However, if you have a forced air heating system, then various noises will be present. There are basically three categories of furnace related noise: 1. Any time you have a fan moving air through a duct system you will hear it. The farther away from the furnace the quieter it will be. But this is a normal operational noise and not indicative of any problems. 2. Mechanical noises do require an inspection. If you hear a metal against metal screeching then you want to shut down the unit until our service technican inspects it. Any unusual noises from the inducer motor also require a professional evaluation. 3. Loud and unusual air flow noises are probably the most common that we encounter. If you hear any whistling noises while the blower motor is on that would usually mean that the duct system is too small or the furnace is oversized. Oil canning or loud banging noises from the ductwork when the blower starts and stops is an- other common problem related to duct and/or furnace sizing. If you are having any comfort issues or noise problems with your HVAC system please call us for a free evaluation. Almost all of these conditions can be reversed.
