But before I begin to address this, it's important that I know the type of system you have and at what point the problem started. Is your central heating gas or electric? Is it an old system? Was there a recent repair done on the unit before it started rattling? We always urge users to give such details in their questions to enable us give accurate answers since we are not present to look at the system.
