Noise issue with indoor furnace/AC unit


Hello,
I have a Carrier furnace unit situated in a corner wall, which faces the kitchen/family room. There are air-intake vents on either side of the corner. The fan from the unit creates excessive noise (in the kitchen and family room) when it is running. Is there any way to pseudo-soundproof the unit (or the cavity behind the intake vents) to cut down on the noise (without compromising the efficiency of the unit)?
Thanks,
Jim

It is a motor noise, a whooshing noise, a rattle?

It is mostly the sound of the fan sucking air through the vents, and a little of the motor through the wall.
