Furnace in Attic

Furnace in attic causing some noise. I have loose insulation but that isn't very effective with reducing noice or heat. What can be used to reduce the noise and if it reduces the heat transfer to the second story that would help with keeping the house cooler.

Marsha,

A lot depends on whether you are experiencing vibration from the furnace. The fiberglass insulation really does nothing as far as soundproofing. There are materials that  would work to quell much of the furnace noise from traveling into the living areas. I would just need to have a little more detailed nformation on the actual location of the furnace, and the types of noise that is causing you problems. Also, if you are hearing the furnace noises through the ducting, that information would be helpful as well.
Marsha, there are definitely ways to combat the noise from a loud furnace/AC unit in an attic.
I look forward to your reply.
