Defective receptacle?

Sounds like the noise is from your furnace. Check if the noise is coming from inside...

Don't worry about it. It can handle A LOT! I'd be more concerned you're using the correct fasteners/wood screws to hold the bracket.

I've heard and read that sprayfoam can burn the wiring but I'm reading conflicting opinions.
