Sounds Your HVAC System Makes

Sounds Your HVAC System Makes | HVAC Northern Kentucky | Rusk Heating & Cooling Can't hear what your spouse is saying from the other room because the vents are so loud? Can't hear the TV because the pipes are so loud? Can't hear the radio because there's banging and clanking going on? While some noises you hear from your home's HVAC system are completely normal, there are certain sounds that could indicate there's a serious problem. Familiarize yourself with a few of the common sounds below: Rattling: Your system shouldn't be making a rattling noise. If it is, it probably means there's a loose component or a broken part. If it seems to be coming from inside the furnace you'll want to turn the system off right away and call in a professional. Why do you need an expert? Oftentimes, removing the piece making noise isn't a simple task - it usually requires the knowledge and tools only a pro would possess. Hissing: Snakes are supposed to hiss, your HVAC system isn't. Most of the time, this means air is escaping from your ducts. Hissing is a major red flag because not only is the sound a nuisance, it means you're wasting money. Even worse, holes in your ducts could mean toxic gases are leaking into the air. Clanking: Similar to rattling noises, clanking sounds could mean there are loose parts. Loose parts can cause some serious damage that could leave you with steep repair bills if you don't care of them right away. Hearing any of the above noises coming from your home's HVAC system? Call on the experts at Rusk Heating & Cooling right away. Our technicians will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend the best courses of action.
