Noises a heating device makes

I heard from a friend of mine that if your furnace makes sounds, you are basically screwed, and a noisy furnace indicates that something is grinding together and will be a big oil furnace repair; Of course, my heating device started making some noise and I freaked out… Thankfully I did not call the local Heating and Air Conditioning contractor instantly.

I decided to do a little research online, then noises can be a big deal, however most of the time are just a small fix.

If your Heating and Air Conditioning device is making a whistling noise, it could be something as easy as a gap in the air duct. The air duct connecting to the oil furnace could have a small gap that allows the air to whistle through. A little taping around the air duct and the complication is solved. If the oil furnace is making a loud banging noise, it could be the squirrel cage not respectfully secured… You can bolt it down or just put styrofoam underneath the whole heating equipment. The sound is then gone. If the heating device makes a squeak every time you walk by, that is the bolts on the heating element. It means they are a bit tight, but just loosen them and all is good, and what I had to do was screw my bolts in a little tighter. The noise from my oil furnace went away and it seems to be superb now. I suppose a Heating and Air Conditioning contractor would have charged myself and others a ton for just a easy fix; Good thing I did a little research before I paid for it.
