You may think you’re stuck with your noisy furnace, but you’re not.

The annoyance of a noisy furnace only gets worse as we get closer to our cold Canadian winters, when our furnaces are forced to run longer cycles. If your furnace is running at its peak condition, you may not even notice the length of its cycles, but many furnaces make enough noise to be a distraction from your comfort.

An abnormally loud furnace can affect not only your comfort but your bank account too. An increase in the noise level of your furnace’s operation often means that there is some kind of inefficiency within the system. Depending on the age and the fit of your home, here are some potential solutions to your noise problems:

  • Part repair
  • Maintenance
  • System adjustments
  • Add-on equipment to decrease workload
  • Full system or part replacement

Much of these issues stem from a lack of equipment maintenance. Therefore, having your system checked and cleaned regularly means that you’ll be able to spot where parts begin to fail and where your machine has to compensate for them. You’ll also be able to get to the root of why these parts began to fail in the first place and adjust your home comfort system and settings accordingly.

With proper maintenance and adjustments your system should be able to run less, have shorter cycles and operate closer to its original state.

One source for extra noise that isn’t usually fixed by maintenance, can be your system’s ducts. If your ducts have been around for a long time or weren’t installed properly, they can be a main source for inefficient heating and cooling. They can develop leaks which affect your system’s air velocity and make it more difficult to condition the entire home, and it forces your system to run longer. They can also be improperly sized to begin with and cause similar problems with the air velocity of your system.

Finally, when you hear a lot of metal pops and creaks which can be due to a low quality sheet metal used in your system. At HAMCO, we have our own sheet metal shop, so we design personalized ducts for your home with higher quality metal. With thicker, high-quality steel, the duct system is much more rigid and not as affected by the daily operations of your home.

If you want to get rid of noisy ducts altogether, you could also consider a ductless system.

Keep your system running efficiently and quietly, to hush the noise pollution in your home, click here and schedule maintenance with HAMCO today.
