Noisy Furnace - Challenger

We've had our Challenger 37TB now almost a year. In that year we've not had need of our gas furnace (very lucky and well planned). After spending a couple of months in Key West we've been making our way back north. We've been in central Florida for about a week and I needed to turn on our furnace (39 overnight - uugghh).

We typically use our fireplace and a small electric heater but with the chill this morning I turned on the furnace. The furnace works but WOW - is it noise when the heat box is firing. Sounds is almost a rumble. When the flame cuts off and just the blower is working not so noisy.

Any others out there with such a noisy furnace rather it is in a Challenger or not?

Thanks.

They all are noisy, and I've not heard off much you can do about it.

I had another Class A and it was noisy but this one is NOISY! Rumbling. So if the furnace is typical, I may try using some insulation material that I have to dampen the noise.

Post probably to old to find in search but several (not challengers) experimented with baffles covered with soudproofing material in the return air path. Actual db levels measured before and after did show modest improvement. Not much you can do about sound coming out of the vents without restricting air flow which is a no-no.
