Halloween is almost here. It’s the time when we want to tell ghost stories and entertain the idea of ghosts among us. During the festive Halloween season, it may be fun to dream of all things ghostly. It’s probably the only time of the year when you want to hear ghost noises. If you’ve ruled out a visit from the afterlife and determined the noises you hear are actually coming from your HVAC system, it might be time for an HVAC contractor to get to work!
How An HVAC Contractor Can Sort Out The Strange Noises:
An HVAC Contractor Rids Your Home of the Squeals and Screeches!
Squealing noises in the middle night can be frightful. They are likely a sign you have a bad belt or have motor bearing problems in your blower motor. It’s important to replace belts before they break, so a small inexpensive repair doesn’t become bigger and more costly.
An HVAC Contractor Solves the Rattles, Thumps, Clanks and Bangs!
The noises that go bump in the night such as thumping, clanking and banging usually indicate a problem with your HVAC system’s motor. Your HVAC contractor would likely recommend a repair before the part breaks or disconnects completely.
An HVAC Contractor Rids your Home of the Haunting Clicks
While some level of clicking noises are normal when the HVAC unit turns on and off, a disturbing level of clicking indicates a bigger problem. If you hear repeated clicking sounds, contact your HVAC contractor right away as there could be an electrical problem brewing.
An HVAC Contractor Eliminates Rattling from AC Compressor and Fan unit
Sometimes the haunting noises come from outside your home. For example rattling on the hardware, fans or motor needs attention from a professional ASAP to ensure you don’t experience complete engine failure.
Screams in the middle of the night? It Might be Time to Call your HVAC Contractor
A high-pitched whistling or screaming could be an indicator of a serious problem. Not a ghost, of course. It is, however, something requiring the assistance of an HVAC pro. Be sure to shut the air conditioner off right away. The most likely cause is a refrigerant leak. It could also indicate high internal pressure within your compressor, both of which are extremely dangerous.
