When you move into your new home in Rancho Cucamonga, you might find its HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system producing some noise. However, it’s normal for them to make noises such as a sustained humming sound or air passing through the vents.
On the other hand, your HVAC system might make noises that sound out of the ordinary. If you hear any of the following sounds below, then it may be time to call in an expert on HVAC in Rancho Cucamonga:
A consistent, clanging sound in the air ducts is a possible sign of debris or small items that have fallen in there. Unchecked, all that debris can cause the ducts to become clogged or dirty. However, it is easy to eliminate this sound by having the ducts cleaned.
Tuning Fork Air Vents
All air vents make some noise due to their system fans turning. If you hear a high-pitched, tuning fork kind of sound, then it might be a sign of a blocked air filter. Have the technician check the filter aside from the air ducts to solve this problem.
An HVAC system with a loud knocking or thumping sound definitely warrants your attention. Usually, it is a result of a missing screw or loose belt, both of which are easy to fix. It,however, might also be the sound of a serious malfunction, so call in a technician to check it out.
Other noises such as a loud explosion and sudden rattle may require calling in an expert on heating and air conditioning repair in Rancho Cucamonga. Bringing in an expert such as Day Aire can help find problems in your HVAC systems and have them repaired promptly.
