I hope this is not a duplicate but I couldn't find the post I thought I sent. I have a Rheem Central A/C and Heat system. The compressor unit is outside and the heat exchanger and fan are in the house. They are located in an elevated(about 2-3ft) closet adjacent to our bedroom and close to our Den. The Return Air vents (2) approx 2x2ft are positioned below the fan and Heat exchanger unit.The closet opens up into the attic so there is no ceiling to the closet. When the temp setting activates the A/C /Heating (Fan), you can hardly hear yourself think. I am not saying it sounds like it is broke or squeking. The noise level is very disurbing. It sounds like forced air comming or going. I do not know if the noise is comming through the two doors to the closet or through the two Return Air vents below. Maybe both. Would it help if I installed insolution or soundproof material to the inside of the closet and in the space below where the Return Ait vents are located. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. I don't want to have to replace the unit (we just bought the house) to quieten the thing but I know I will have to eventually. The unit is about 5 years old.
