Noisy old heater

Hi,
I have a old forced-air, hot-water heating unit in the cellar, hanging on the ceiling. It's a Trane "model S" Unit Heater, about 2'x2'x1' in size, electric fan in the back of it.
The fan is really noisy, but motor seems in good shape otherwise.
What can I replace it with?
Are newer residential heaters of this type any quieter?
(This is a loud commercial unit, I guess, because the Trane website states these "units provide uniform heating for large open areas in such applications as warehouses, factories and showrooms.")

I'd like to take it down and haul it outside and blast some air through it....

Thanks, I did think of doing that, those are much quieter.

If you can supply a NG line and a vent to the site, a smaller Modine 'HotDawg' would be the perfect solution. They can mount directly on the ceiling. Around $385-400 usual price.

I use a solar power heater hooked up to a <a href=http://www.shophmac.com/heaters/hydronic-heaters/hydronic-unit-heaters.html modine hydronic unit heater</a> and its pretty quiet.
