Hi. I'm in a quandary. For the past few months I hear, at intervals, a loud buzzing or vibrating from the outside wall. The noise lasts only a few seconds, but it is loud. Today it is happening repeatedly.

We are in the throws of a serious snow storm this week, which makes me even more nervous about this situation because if it's electrical, this would be the worst time to risk a fire.

Thanks for your help.

Thats weird, this happens to me, its like a pulsing vibration outside that makes the walls vibrate a little but is loud. It lasts usually about 20 minutes in total but the pulses last a few seconds.
I dont know what it can be (I live in south florida btw so I cant give you an opinion on the snow thing)

How close is the sound to the breaker panel?
Heat pump for heat?

Killed the power to any circuits in that area and removed the outlets and switch covers to check for back stabbed wiring, burn marks, loose wiring?
