Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do I hear a ticking noise coming from the registers when my furnace kicks on?
A: Some popping, pinging or rubbing sounds are the natural result of ductwork heating and cooling in response to airflow as the system operates. While eliminating all these sounds is impossible, we will correct oil canning. (Oil canning occurs when a large area of sheet metal like those found in air ducts makes a loud noise as it moves up and down in response to temperature changes.)


Q: Why does a room or area of my home not get heat/cool air?
A: First, check your registers to make sure they are open, allowing heated or cooled air to enter the room. If registers are open but you feel no air coming through, contact your HVAC contractor for assistance.


Q: Why does my furnace make a loud booming noise when it turns on?
A: Eliminating the popping and pinging sounds in your ductwork is impossible, but "oil canning" should be corrected. Oil canning occurs when a large area of sheet metal like those found in air ducts makes a loud noise as it moves up and down in response to temperature changes. Contact your HVAC contractor for assistance.
