An HVAC unit makes a variety of noises when it heats and cools your home in Plano, Texas. Some of these sounds, like a beeping noise when it kicks on, may not be anything to worry about. Sometimes, the HVAC unit vibrates as well. A constant vibration could be the result of an oversized compressor or blower, both of which need to be addressed. Keep reading to learn more about the sources of HVAC vibration and how to address them.
Excessive vibration could be a result of the water pump in the HVAC system not having damping pads. This is most commonly seen in heating and cooling units that use hydronic piping. A professional technician can install damping pads to minimize the vibration.
An oversized compressor causes the unit to vibrate excessively and can result in unnecessary wear and tear. It also drives up your heating and cooling expenses by causing the unit to cycle more than it should. If this is the source of the problem, it needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
Regardless if the HVAC unit is the proper size for your home, inadequate support combined with a lack of preventive maintenance can lead to noisy vibration. A professional contractor can install neoprene or fiberglass pads in the correct places within the system to minimize vibration.
If the ductwork is poorly designed, this could lead to noisy vibration as well. When the ductwork isn’t installed properly, the flow of air will be too much for the system to handle, thus causing it to vibrate excessively. A professional HVAC specialist can make any necessary adjustments to ensure the ductwork is designed and installed correctly.
