Is My HVAC Unit Haunted?
Posted on October 9th, 2018
Have you been watching horror movies quite frequently? If so, you might start to hear the faintest of noises in your home — especially those that come from your air vents and beyond. While it’s perfectly natural to hear these HVAC-related noises, you might think that your unit is haunted. Good news? It’s not. Bad news? It might need a repair, especially if you hear these sounds:
One of the most common “spooky” sounds you can hear from your HVAC unit is a buzzing sound. Sure, you might think that a bumblebee is floating around (or a ghost with a cell phone, on vibrate) — but it’s actually indicating that your unit might have a loose part bouncing around.
This, of course, is usually a simple fix when it’s caught in time, but it’s essential to have a technician from Plumbing & A/C Medic take a look before that loose part becomes a massive problem in your unit.
Another familiar sound that can be heard from a “haunted” HVAC unit is a humming noise. No, a ghost or spirit isn’t humming their favorite tune at all hours of the day — but simply your unit is trying to tell you that an essential part isn’t working correctly.
Sure, the humming might not be as loud as the buzzing, but it still is imperative to take care of the minute you hear it. If you neglect to have your HVAC unit examined, then it might break down your unit over time — which will be quite scary when it completely stops working!
No, the monster from last night’s horror movie marathon isn’t lurking in your air ducts — but your unit most definitely has a part that’s interfering with another essential component. One of the most common problems?
The internal blower fan might be breaking down and causing a ruckus inside your unit. The solution? No, you don’t have to call a paranormal expert — but merely give Plumbing & A/C Medic a call to have it repaired in no time!
