    Default Furnace Whistle

    A couple of years ago I had a new high efficiency gas fueled furnace installed. Almost directly above the furnace on the 1st floor is a "double wide" cold air return. When the furnace turns on there is an audible whistle that drives the wife crazy. If I loosen the register at one end and pull the register away from the wall a few inches, the whistle stops. Weirder, if I install the cold air return grill upside down, the whistle stops as well. What causes this whistle and what should I do to eliminate the whistle (with the cold air return installed correctly?)

    The whistle is probably coming from around the perimeter of the grill. some foam weatherstripping around the perimeter should fix it.
