Air handler transformer is buzzing
The transformer in my air handler is buzzing. I have an old Carrier air handler unit (circa 1990), and I'm pretty sure it is the original transformer. Two questions:
1.) Will this buzzing transformer cause any issues besides being a slight noise annoyance? Once it goes, it goes, and I understand that will cause issues, but until that point, I believe it is not bad.
2.) I have a picture of the transformer below. I'm looking to see if the link to the transformer I have below this is a suitable replacement, or if anyone knows of a better one.

It's all over buddy
It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.
Slight buzzing or humming from the transformer is quite normal. It's one of the very first things I listen for when I first kneel down beside a furnace or air handler to determine if there is power to the unit while I'm grabbing my tools.
When and if it becomes necessary to replace it, please call a technician to confirm it has died and select the correct replacement.
