Why Is My Furnace Clicking?
Click. Click. Click. Sound familiar? No, we’re not talking about your car or that strange bug outside – we’re talking about your furnace. Sure, you’ve probably heard lots of noises coming from your home’s heating system, but this one seems to be something out of the ordinary. What could it be? Find out below:
Different noises could mean there’s a variety of things going on inside your furnace, we’re going to focus on clicking noises here:
- The Ignition System: if you’ve got a gas furnace and are noticing a clicking noise, it could mean the spark igniter isn’t working properly. The spark igniter is the piece that lights the burners in order to produce heat.
- Worn Out Bearings: if you opened up a furnace’s motor, you’d find a number of bearings. And if the bearings are worn out, they can produce a clicking sound. You’ll want to get them replaced right away otherwise the motor can burn itself out.
- Gas Valve: notice the sound at random times throughout the day or night without any sort of pattern? Chances are it’s a problem with the gas valve. In most areas, it’s required by law for your gas company to come out to inspect this problem and replace your home’s meter if it’s not operating properly.
