Fluctuations in temperature is the culprit here. Internal parts of a furnace are affected by the slightest degree of change.
Over time, parts will loosen and begin rattling inside the furnace. It might also mean there are other issues, primarily with your ductwork.
When you hear metal against metal, the blower wheel might have come loose. Or worse, a piece from the heating unit broke loose and is stuck in the blower wheel.
A soft hum from a furnace is normal and expected. But when the humming gets louder and louder, that’s a sign of a malfunctioning blower motor.
If you hear a loud rumbling noise, oil is burning in the combustion chamber after a heating cycle completes. The other issues could be the burners, flame sensor, or pilot light.
If there is a slight delay during ignition, the booming sound points to a significant gas issue. If you smell any gas, call Jackson Comfort Services and the gas company now.
