noise is from relay not from transformer
HVAC Technician: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 6 months ago

Thanks, ***** ***** contacts in the relay are clean, then wear on the relay armature is causing the buzz, the solution is to replace the relay.

Tell me the brand name on the relay and any numbers on it, and I will see if I can find you a new one.
