I haven’t noticed any noticeable correlation with the noise and the wind outside yet but this could be a good lead. Tomorrow when it’s not dark out I’ll stand outside and have my gf for the noise when the wind is picking up.

It has gotten considerably colder/windier here in the northern Midwest though.

Could be a Syphon for heating too maybe a little clogged

Do you mean something like a air vent to the outside?

More like a pipe with corrosion perhaps some condensation happens with the changes in temperature and the air or liquid inside makes a movement hence the noise. Just a wild guess

There could be something loose on the siding outside. Also, the backdraft flapper on a vent fan (kitchen or bathroom or even the dryer vent) can be affected by the wind (you can try turning the fan or dryer on when you hear the banging and see if that changes it). And rain can also find its way to dripping onto metal flashing/eves/vents.

Building is brick outside but possible it’s a vent van. I’ll have to take a look at vent placement (may have to rent extremely tall ladder from HD to check out vents in detail ugh). But I will try turning on dryer or fan next time I hear it!
