Furnace Noise | Heating and Air Conditioning Dallas, TX

Daniel Reichert - Tuesday, October 18, 2016

As you test your furnace this fall, and once you begin using it, it's wise to be on the lookout for any signs that your system is developing a problem. Unusual furnace noise is often an indication of a problem. The following will assist you in identifying some of the furnace noises you should listen for, and what they may mean. As you test fire the furnace this fall, contact Garland Heating and Air Conditioning for the repair, installation or the annual fall maintenance of your heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX. 

Booming. Grumbling or Clicking

If your furnace makes a grumbling or loud booming noise when it turns on, the foremost concern is a problem with the burner assembly. The burner assembly is the component that burns natural gas in order to generate heat. Over time, carbon from the burning of natural gas will build up on the burner assembly. If the assembly isn’t  routinely cleaned, it will clog with the deposits delaying its ignition of the gas. When this occurs,  gas builds up once the system turns on, and it is the ignition of excessive gas causing the booming  or grumbling sound. 

Contact your HVAC technician for annual service and maintenance of your home's heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX. Booming or grumbling may also  indicate holes in the burner chamber if your system has been well-maintained. Call for service as this is a potentially hazardous condition. Clicking can also indicate issues in the burner and/or other related components.

Grinding or Screeching

The air handler is the part of a furnace that turns the fan, which is responsible for circulating air throughout the home during operation. The air handler, or fan motor is equipped with oiled bearings which facilitates its smooth operation. Over time, the bearings will wear out, causing friction and generating a loud grinding or screeching sound. If you hear this sound, call for furnace repair immediately. The bearings must be replaced before the motor burns itself out. Though not common fire is a potential hazard. Routine maintenance of your heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX will reduce wear and tear and ensure the bearings are lubricated. 

Rattling and Squealing

Some older furnaces are equipped with a blower motor belt, which when worn can throw the blower motor off balance and create a rattling sound. A loose fan or worn motor may also cause a rattling sound. In addition, the belt may slip, producing a high pitched squeal. Other potential causes of squealing include a worn fan and/or fan motor.


Air leaks in the ducts or ventilation system can create a high pitched whistling noise.

If you have any questions about  any furnace noise coming from your furnace, or if you’d like service or installation for heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX  in your home, contact Garland Heating and Air Conditioning. Our NATE certified technicians possess the expertise to service and repair all major brands. We serve Dallas, Plano and the surrounding areas, and are a member of the BBB with an A+ rating.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors | Heating and Air Conditioning

Daniel Reichert - Friday, October 14, 2016

As the heating season draws near, the importance of inspection and maintenance on your gas furnace can't be stressed enough. You will benefit with a clean system, optimal energy efficiency and most importantly, annual maintenance ensure the safe operation of the furnace. A gas furnace operates through the process of combustion heating. The byproducts of combustion  includes carbon monoxide, a toxic gas that can be fatal in high concentrations. The heating system that generates carbon monoxide through combustion is designed to exhaust it safely. However, the pipe can be damaged, or debris collects in the pipe, leading to carbon monoxide spilling into your home, rather than being properly exhausted outdoors. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified technicians can provide the reliable heating and air conditioning services you require.

Carbon monoxide is an invisible, tasteless and odorless gas generated through the combustion of any fossil fuel, including gas and wood.  In the bloodstream, it binds to the oxygen receptors in the red blood cells, depriving your body of life giving oxygen and causing slow suffocation. Without detectors, it's virtually impossible to detect early, aside from the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. For this reason, it's essential to have carbon monoxide detectors installed throughout your home in the event  of a leak. The detectors monitor for carbon monoxide molecules, and alarm when they detect rising levels. As with smoke detectors, early warning allows the occupants the time to escape unharmed.

Without carbon monoxide detectors, the chances of your family succumbing to the lethal gas are greatly increased. Sleeping persons who are exposed seldom wake up, succumbing without being aware they are slowly being asphyxiated. This is why carbon monoxide detectors are essential in sleeping areas as well as on each level of the home. Any home containing fuel burning space heaters, gas water heaters, fireplace chimneys, a gas furnace or those who run a car in a closed garage should have carbon monoxide detectors. Always open the garage door before starting a car. Carbon monoxide detectors should be tested every month, along with the smoke detector.

Schedule Heating Maintenance

The heating season will soon arrive. You will want to schedule heating maintenance before the furnace is needed, and providing maintenance now has the added benefit of beating the last minute rush for service.  

You don't wait until a problem occurs to your car before changing the oil, and the heating and air conditioning system is also a mechanical piece of equipment requiring maintenance.  Routine maintenance is preventative maintenance. The system is cleaned, oiled, inspected, and tested. Problems just beginning to develop can be caught early by your HVAC technician and repair provided before additional damage occurs. A well-maintained furnace or heating and air conditioning system is more reliable, operates with the highest possible efficiency, performs better and lasts longer. Ultimately, maintenance and timely repairs save you money by preventing premature failure, and the need for a replacement furnace or heating and air conditioning system.

Carbon Monoxide Detector Placement Poisoning

The proper placement of a carbon monoxide (CO) detector is important. If you are installing only one carbon monoxide detector, locate it near the sleeping area, where it can wake sleeping occupants. Additional detectors on every level, in or within 10 feet of every bedroom and in the basement are strongly recommended.

Tips for Installation

  • Don't install carbon monoxide detectors directly above or beside fuel-burning appliances. Small amounts of carbon monoxide may be released during the start-up of appliances.
  • A detector shouldn't be placed within fifteen feet of heating or cooking appliances or in humid areas such as bathrooms.
  • Replace carbon monoxide detectors every five to ten years.
  • Battery-only carbon monoxide detectors may require new batteries frequently, and it's a necessity to test the product each month. Plug-in detectors with a battery backup require less battery changes, and operate on electricity unless a power outage occurs. A good rule of thumb is to purchase two changes of rechargeable batteries, and exchange the batteries each month.
  • Carbon monoxide detectors are available for wiring into a security system and monitor for carbon monoxide. The central station is alerted  to rising concentrations of carbon monoxide gas and alerts the proper authorities to ensure your safety.

The gas furnace can be a source of lethal carbon monoxide gas in the home. Cause typically include age and corrosion of the heating and air conditioning system. Corrosion causes holes and cracks to occur in the gas burner, resulting in the release of dangerous carbon monoxide, and also the potential for explosion. Annual maintenance of the heating and air conditioning system will identify problems and enable your HVAC technician to provide timely furnace repair or replacement.

Remember, in addition to having functional carbon monoxide detectors in your home, annual maintenance is an essential part of ensuring the performance and safety of your gas furnace or system. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified technicians will provide a comprehensive inspection of the furnace, or other gas burning heating and air conditioning systems with annual maintenance.
