Why Is My Heater Making Strange Noises?
Hearing loud banging, booming, whistling, squealing, chirping, or rattling noises coming from a heating system can leave any homeowner feeling unsettled. In most cases, these types of strange noises are indicators that something else is wrong. For example, loud banging sounds could be caused by a weak area in the ductwork or a place where the ducts are too tight. The sound of loud booming is cause for serious concern. The issue is usually due to delayed ignition which can cause significant damage to a heater.
When a heater is producing a whistling noise, it may be because something is interfering with the airflow, such as a clogged or dirty filter. The issue could also be caused by a blocked return, objects stuck in the ductwork, or simply just closed vents. Our HVAC professionals can get to the bottom of any strange noises and provide the best solution.

The key to preventing problems with a heating system is routine maintenance. Typically, a well-maintained heater can perform at optimal levels for an entire heating season. The system should be serviced once annually, sometime before its first use for the year. The annual maintenance appointment allows for the examination and cleaning of parts that typically malfunction, such as the heat exchanger, fan, pilot light, and air filter.
There are several benefits of annual maintenance, including:
- Increasing the energy efficiency of the heating system
- Extending the lifespan of the heater
- Discovering minor issues before they become bigger problems
- Improving indoor air quality in the home
When to Replace a Furnace
The average life expectancy of a furnace is 15 to 20 years. When a heating system reaches this age, it typically operates less efficiently, causing energy bills to soar and comfort to diminish. In some cases, a furnace cannot be repaired due to a primary part not being available. At other times, one may have access to the part but it’s too expensive. In both instances, replacing the unit is the best option.
Common signs that a furnace is ready to be replaced include:
Just because a furnace is 15 years old does not necessarily mean it needs to be replaced. If the system is properly maintained and has no other signs of problems, there’s no reason to get rid of it. However, it is a good idea to keep a close eye on the heater’s performance to ensure it is replaced on time.
