Causes of Furnace Noise

If banging noises happen when your furnace turns on, it may be caused by dirty burners. This delays ignition; gas builds up before the burners ignite. You’re hearing a small explosion of excess gas. Just small, but still explosions, and it sure does sound a little scary! Ignoring this problem can lead to a cracked heat exchanger or worse. Once the heat exchanger goes, you’ll be buying a new furnace. Buying a new furnace can be a good thing – it’ll probably save you money on your monthly energy bills – but not when you aren’t ready for it.

If banging noises happen away from the furnace, you may be hearing expanding and contracting air ducts. Different parts of the air ducts pop in or out as air is blown and sucked through them. Though this problem is less serious, it still needs attention. Your air filter may be so clogged that it is not working correctly or the ducts may be undersized for the system. Sometimes, closed vents cause expansion and contraction. Whatever it is, your system is not operating efficiently, and that costs you money. An evaluation from AirWave’s experienced technicians can pinpoint the reason for the expansion and give you a handful of options to stop the noise.
