Noises a heating unit makes

I heard from a neighbor of mine that if your heating method makes sounds, you are basically screwed.

A noisy heating method indicates that something is grinding together and will be a crucial gas furnace repair, however of course, my heating unit started making some noise and I freaked out; Thankfully I did not call the local Heating and Air Conditioning corporation immediately, then i decided to do a little research online, however noises can be a big deal, however most of the time are just a small fix.

If your Heating and Air Conditioning unit is making a whistling noise, it could be something as easy as a gap in the ductwork. The ductwork connecting to the oil furnace could have a small gap that allows the air to whistle through. A little taping around the ductwork and the problem 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 unit makes a squeak every time you walk by, that is the bolts on the heating element. It means they are a bit tight. Just loosen them and all is good… What I had to do was screw my bolts in a little tighter. The noise from my gas furnace went away and it seems to be wonderful now. I think a Heating and Air Conditioning corporation would have charged me a ton for just a easy fix, and good thing I did a little research before I paid for it.
