Loud daily rumble in crawlspace.


3 times a day at 8.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm, there is a loud rumble in my crawlspace and my house shakes for a second. It happens everyday at these same times regardless of any appliances I am running at the time. It sounds like a large appliance being dragged across a floor. Any ideas?

Have you gone into your crawl space during those times?

Blasting in your neighborhood?

When I first moved in my house shook every day at 10:30 a.m. Baffling. Turned out a few streets over, a construction project was ongoing and they had permits to blast once per day, and they always did it at the same time.

Edited to add: Although 8:30 a.m. seems a little early for blasting.

My only thought would be a sump pump that is excessively noisy. The problem with that theory is that they work on a float switch, not a timer, and it's unlikely that the pump would come on at exactly the same times every day.

Have you had a ride on that train yet?

Do you live above a mine?

That rat that lives in your crawl space is eating all the deer in the neighborhood.

is there anything on a timer in your home? furnace maybe?

How long have you lived there and has it always done that?

Have you gone down and looked? or are you too scared?

Original poster has vanished-----I hope the noise in the basement was not a hibernating bear with a snoring problem.
