Spooky HVAC Stories

Trick or Treat spelled out with cookies

When October rolls around, it's time for some spooky surprises. While seeing your neighborhood children all dress up can be a good surprise, many homeowners worry about some eerie incidents that can happen this fall involving their HVAC system. By knowing the most common spooky instances, you can respond with knowledge instead of fear to solve the problem effortlessly.

The Cold Room

If you have a cold room in your home, and you swear that it is affected by a vengeful ghost, it's time to come to reality. There are a couple of reasons that one specific room in your home may seem colder than the other, no matter how high you turn your thermostat up. The most likely culprit is a dirty air filter. This clogged filter can prevent the warm air in your system from getting into that specific room. If the cold room is located the farthest distance from your HVAC system, it could be that your duct has some severe leaks, or your system isn't powerful enough to produce enough hot air to heat your entire home.

The Wailing Wall

So, you're curled up in bed, getting ready to finally let go for a goodnight's rest, and you hear an unexpected wailing sound from your wall. This wailing is not likely a ghost. Rather, it's a sign that your HVAC system needs maintenance. Worn belts and motor bearings can give off several noises from wailing and banging to screeching and squealing. By calling in an HVAC professional, you can get to the source of the problem and remedy it so you can enjoy a goodnight's rest without that fearful wail.

The Slowly Closing Door

All horror movies tend to have that one indication that something is amiss when a door slowly starts to close. The creaking noise grabs your attention as your eyes wander around the door, looking for the missing culprit. While it may sound more intriguing to blame the neighborhood ghost, that's not likely the culprit. Instead, a pressure imbalance in your system can lead to a forceful draft that can shut a door without a trace.
