You may hear a small rattle or shaking which begins in your basement. You try to ignore it for a few weeks until it begins to pick up and get louder. The rattle then turns into what sounds like a freight train running through your basement each time your HVAC system goes on. Any idea what’s causing the horrible noise? The most likely scenario is your blower motor. Whether your air conditioner or furnace is on, your blower motor is always working, always in action. The fan circulates air in the through the duct work in your house and even the slightest disturbance in its function could result in a massive system failure.
This year, several of the Chicagoland homeowners who needed a new blower motor had issues within their duct work. Our technicians have found several unbalanced motors due to debris getting caught in the blower compartment. Anything from plastic, paper and food have been found in the blower motor causing major problems to the expensive blower motor.
The importance keeping your air ducts clean cannot be overstated. The ducts in your house flow to each room in your home to distribute warm or cool air and return unconditioned air back to your HVAC system. Any debris in your home can then become lodged in your duct work and over time, can clog your HVAC system and gain access to your blower motor. Our professional Chicago air duct cleaning technicians can repair and clean your air ducts leaving them like new and debris free. Call Viking Heating and Cooling for a free estimate!
