ignore-noise-cover-earsIt takes a few minutes for the fan of a furnace to finally start that familiar whir sound. That’s because it takes a few minutes for the furnace plenum to actually heat up after the burners light, and the fan does not start running until it is warm enough to deliver air to the vents in your home.
