The only noise I have ever heard is from the newer units that do not use 
a pilot light for gas.  The "spark" ignition systems can cause 
interference during those times where the heater is firing up.  I recall 
this at my folks house with 1975 circa heaters with add on ignition 
systems.  We just replaced the heater at our home a few years ago and I 
don't recall hearing this same noise here.  It could be that I am used 
to it and it goes away quickly.    I don't recall hearing anything on 
our AC/heater combo in Montana which was installed in 2004.
