Is Your furnace is extra noisy? Furnaces will make noises every time they turn on and off that is normal. As the unit ages though, a new sound may start or it may get louder. You may hear may popping, banging, humming, or squealing. This could be a sign that some of the parts within your furnace may need to be replaced or tightened or you may need to replace your unit. The reason for some of these sounds could be:
Rattling: Loose ductwork, screws or sheet metal can be the cause of this sound. Or it could also mean the blower motor is not balanced properly.
Popping: as your system cools and heats parts will make a popping sound.
Humming: Your fan motor will make humming sounds, but the fan should never be loud or disruptive. If it is, your inducer motor or blower fan motor could be starting to go.
Squealing: These noises are an indication that there is an overall issue with your blower motor or inducer motor. This could be a loose bearing, worn belt, or a noisy pulley
