My Furnace is Making a Weird Noise Pt. 1

Nothing is worse than a malfunctioning furnace during the dead of winter! There is however, something that is equally as frustrating as a broken furnace…and that’s one that makes a lot of noise!

What to do if your furnace is making a whining noise:

The most common cause of whining noise is a damaged blower motor.  Based on how badly it is malfunctioning, it can either be fixed or replaced by one of our technicians.  That sounds scary, but not to worry, depending on the age of your system, the part may be under warranty. Also the blower belt may be loose and slipping or frayed.  If it is slipping it can be fixed, but if it is fraying it will eventually need to be replaced.  Another cause for whining is that the shafts may just need to be oiled with a light lubricant. When you hear this noise, we recommend shutting off the furnace right away. Give us a call and we will gladly send out an experienced HVAC repair technician.
