Spooky Homeowner Stories: Is Your HVAC Haunted?
Is your home haunted? Or is it just your HVAC? We’re here to debunk three of the most common misconceptions your home experiences during this spooky fall season.
The Creepy Closing Door
Are your doors creaking slowly without anyone around? This is probably due to a fan — not a supernatural being. Pressure imbalances can lead to an “airflow competition.” Sometimes the fan in your HVAC system turning on can cause an interior door to shut.
If you’re hearing a scary wailing sound, like those heard in haunted-house movies, don’t be afraid! Those mysterious sounds are coming from your HVACs grilles and registers. As air passes through the vanes, a wailing sound will occur, due to the speed the air is traveling. Performance-grade grilles and registers can reduce noise issues — and your local HVAC tech can help with that.
Hot and Cold Rooms
There are two main reasons why you may experience drastic temperature changes in some of the rooms in your home. HINT: Neither of them have to do with ghosts! Hot and chilly rooms are related to duct losses and room surface temperatures impacted over the course of the day.
