    When it's windy there is a loud howling sound which I can stop by opening the door between the kitchen and the garage. When I open the door I can feel very strong air pressure pushing against the door from the garage. What can I do to get rid of this very annoying noise?

    make sure the garage is properly vented to the roof and install some weather strip around the door between the kitchen and the garage.

    You might also want to weather strip your garage door.

    Or run a 4" fresh air pipe into your return air duct to get an 'over-pressure' in the house.
