NOISIEST Burnham Alpine

frankie333 Member Posts: 1
Hi folks, this is the first heating season that this Alpine has gone through.  I have called an HVAC repair person on multiple occasions. anyway the problem is the neighborhood can hear the system..loudly 2 houses down the street, and of course, in the house it is TRULY horrible when the noise comes on.  I tried to record the sound but I can only record the clicking sound the burner makes.  HELP anyone, please!!!  It sounds like someone is moving furniture.  A neighbor thought someone had broken in. Thank you!

    call a tech.

    You need to get a tech there and do a combustion test, before something happens... obviously not running rite if you can hear it, I have installed alpines and never had one sound how you are explaining it, is this NG or LP?

    Combustion analysis

    As Heatpro said, Combustion test.

    Don't let anyone touch it unless the intend to do a combustion test. You are living with a potentially dangerous situation.

    1 When does the noise occur ? On start up I assume..

    2 Did it just start or has it gradually got louder?

    3 Post a pic of venting….

    4 Do you have a copy of installers report on initializing…Did you call him/her back?

    5 Is this natural gas and, if so, what is gas pressure,and is main/riser properly sized?

    Chances are it is a simple fuel/air adjustment…..If it was installed correctly….

    Not installed correctly it could be other issues as well
