We built a new home equipped with a high efficiency Rheem furnace located in the basement of a one story 1200 ft sq house. Our cold air duct intake vents are extremely loud in the initial start up (like a 747 taking off), the next phase the sound kicks down a bit but is still loud and disruptive to sleeping at night.
Removing the cold air vent covers does not change the noise level. The furnace filters are changed on a regular basis.
