    Hard to suggest without seeing the place. I would start with having a company come out and look. Are you renovating? May have to be quite invasive to get a properly working system.

    A true modulating furnace with an ECM blower (not X13) will be the quietest. Obviously correctly sized and properly sized ductwork will help too. Good luck
