Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Furnace


My furnace is making a loud vibration noise that goes on and off when I flipped the heater switch on this year. I can feel a little heat coming from the vents but its not blowing. Do you know what could be causing this and how I can fix it?

It is hard to determine what exactly it could be.  Based on your question, I would lean towards a blower that is not working.  You can try and see if the blower will come on if you set the t-stat to off, then turn the fan to on.  I might even hear the noise while doing so.  If the fan does not come on, then the fan issue is going to have to be repaired.

I have been in the HVAC field for the past 18 years. I can help with most HVAC questions. I work on commerical buildings for the most part, and have yet to find anything I could not troubleshoot and repair, when repairable. I work on small 1 ton units to a 2500 ton chiller. Troubleshoot air flow, elect, and control problems. I attend regular classes to keep up with the latest and greatest.


I work on commerical sites, hospitals, gov't buildings. I can troubleshoot just about anything in the HVAC business.
