When you hear strange noises coming from your home, you immediately wonder if something is wrong. When it comes to your HVAC system, you want it to have a low humming or perhaps no sound at all. If your HVAC starts to produce sounds that no one wants to hear, this means you may have a problem on your hands.

Calling the professionals in Loveland will ensure that your HVAC system is always in great shape and is doing the job it was meant to do.

3 Alarming Sounds You May Hear From Your HVAC

Metal Hitting Metal

If you hear this type sound, we advise you to turn your HVAC system off immediately. This sound can be the cause of two HVAC problems that bring concern. The first is that the blower wheel has come loose from the motor shaft and is hitting the blower housing. If you can simply place it back on, do so. However, sometimes this can cause damage to your HVAC unit and it is best to let a professional step in.

Another reason, and even more worrisome, is the blower wheel has actually broken, which means it will need replacing. This sound this makes is even more distinct; as it sounds like nails on a chalkboard, which is the worst.

Thumping or Vibrating

If your HVAC system has been keeping temperature and seems like it’s running smoothly, it might just be that you have a noisy transformer. Your transformer will always be humming, but sometimes it’s louder than you’d like.

If your HVAC has stopped working and you still hear the humming, you may have a problem with the indoor fan or the capacitor. If you suspect either of things, call us in Loveland to take a look at your HVAC system. We can find a solution to the problem in no time.

Pop or Bang

You may start to hear this sound when the fan in your HVAC system begins and ends. Mainly, you will see this in a model with sheet metal ductwork and is from the return trunk. When the fan begins, the duct pops due to the negative pressure of the HVAC fan. When the fan shuts down, this essentially is the same; the fan pops due to the pressure. If you hear this sound and it’s very loud and bothersome, this could mean you have an undersized duct, clogged filter, or a flimsy duct. Our professional HVAC team can see what the issue is and repair the duct.
