    Hello everyone, Hope you're all well! I've signed up to this forum to look for an advise. I've searched the interned to and fro but couldn't find anything similar. My partner and I live in an old mid-terrace house (build 1867) and since we moved in (a year ago) we've been having problems with...

    Hi all, I am currently working with an HVAC contractor to help us finish our unfinished basement. I would like to reduce noise transfer between ducts in the rooms in the basement but also between the basement and the main floor of our house. Basically I’d like the basement space to be somewhere...

    If you have a Kohler San Raphael toilet knocking.This Rialto Pressure Lite toilet, creates a conundrum. When it's installed in a place that doesn't have the water pressure to shut the valve. This in terms keeps it building pressure, it exceeds the pressure rating. When you flush the plunger...

    First post here. Thank you for the membership. BACKGROUND I have an AO Smith 50-gal water heater. I was having issues with error codes (wouldn't stay lit, faulty thermostat I believe), so I called the company. Since I also had a torn burner screen, AO Smith actually sent over a plumber to fix...

    Hi everybody! My sister's KitchenAid Artisan started to make really loud noises. After checking the forum I opened it and looked for broken gears, missing grease, brushes, etc. but everything was perfect. It seams that it doesn't change the speed when I move the controller and after a minute or...

    I have a GE fridge that I've been using 12 years. Recently it has started making clicking noises that have become frequent and prolonged. It's only become noticeable in the past month, but maybe I heard it once and infrequently before. Link to the sound: (edited - previously ufile.io) The end...
  7. Building & Construction
    Hi, we are building a new home in southwest Ohio and have encountered a curious problem which seems to have stumped everyone. I am reaching out to see if anyone else has experienced something similar or if anyone has any ideas. We are pretty much at a standstill until this can be figured out...

    My AEG refrigerator is probably about 10 years old. A couple of days ago it started making a thudding sound that lasts for a half a second, but I only have heard it once every few hours. However, if I turn the fridge off while it is running it will make that thudding sound as everything shuts...
  9. Roofing/Siding
    I never post on these but my family cannot sleep at night due to our issue. Since we bought this house in 2019, we have heard a rattling/vibrating sound coming from what we can only imagine is the roof. It happens only on very windy days but when it does happen, it goes on every 5 minutes...

    We had bathrooms remodeled in 2016. The contractor installed a hot water recirculator and pex tubing to create a return path. Within a year, the recirculator began making a rapid clicking noise, which became louder over time. The contractor said that was normal and they all do that (i.e., he...

    My neighbor complained that the A/C is too loud and they are unable to sleep in the night. Our compressor is about 12 ft from the fence and their bedroom window is about 10-15 ft from the fence. The unit is Lennox that we bought last year. I bought a decibel meter and it measures around 60-62...

    Hello, This is my first post. I recently tried my hands at replacing the ac fan motor.(After AC person told me the fan wasn't rotating as freely as it should. And motor would probably have to be replaced soon.) I wish I took notes on how the unit sounded/vibrated before doing this. Long...

    I have a Carrier MCB58 gas furnace and since about two weeks it started making a rattling sound when the heat stops (transition from heating to fan circulation only). The filter is new. The blower is clean. The sound seems to be coming from the inducer. Here's a video of the noise (noise...

    Reduce Noise Between Interior Bedroom Walls I thought this would be a simple project but reading a lot of conflicting information. We have a new build finished home, contractor grade. We can hear conversations between the bedroom walls like there is no privacy, even light snoring would wake...
  15. HVAC
    Just had a great HVAC tech come to my place to look at the ductwork because the AC is unbearably loud. Thanks to some great folks on here, I found out that when we upgraded from 3.5ton to 5ton Trane AC, we needed to adjust the ducts to allow for more incoming air and outgoing air. This new...

    Hi all, I own a small manufacturing business in Minneapolis, and we have been experiencing a loud noise on the colder days every 30 - 60 minutes coming from one of our heaters. It starts and lasts about 30 seconds, fading in and eventually fading out. It happens more often on very cold days and...
  17. Electrical
    Just today, I noticed probably a half dozen GFIs around my house are buzzing. I am pretty sure it just started, since some are a bit loud. I know some of these are on different circuits, and not every GFI in the house is doing this. Some buzz, some don't. No recent electrical changes. I cut...

    Let me preface this by saying that I DESPISE geese. They're annoying, they poop everywhere, and they walk slowly across roads. Anyways, my high school is having a serious problem with geese on its baseball fields. They're getting the field and stands very dirty, and we'd prefer to not have...

    Hi there, I recently had a double sink installed and have noticed that the streams coming out of the faucets are very loud and fast. My expectation was that when the handle is only slightly pulled up, it would be a light/quiet stream that gets progressively faster as the handle is pulled...
