expansion and contraction make perfect sense, too much sense to look into it further. the snaps are coming from the part of the frame that has the most moisture in the wood most likely, next to a wall where rain water will seep in from time to time, not enough to cause flooding or anything like that but where moisture gets in the wood, when the heat is on the moisture condensates in the wood causing the loud snaps because the wood is expanding faster than normal. debunked bro

You have other paranormal stuff going on so I guess it isn't unreasonable to think your friend is keeping in touch. I am sorry for your loss, btw. She sounded like the kind of friend we all would like to have.
But the fact lights go off and on and there seems to be a cause and effect relation to the switch to the heater having to be on would make me hire an electrician, if I could afford such a thing in my own life, lol, to check the wiring and make sure nothing is amiss with that. On HGTV there are a couple of Canadian shows by the same expert contractor, Holmes Inspection and Holmes on Homes that are a real eye opener about how wiring can end up in places it wasn't meant to be with results nobody would want to live with. Even brand new construction sometimes ends up with bad wiring and ductwork that wasn't in the original plans, due to subcontractors screwing around or screwing up. How it gets past inspectors, I'll never know. The wiring nightmares those two shows expose are absolutely jaw dropping when you consider sometimes there were only subtle clues something was amiss. Electricians are horribly expensive so I can understand if you would prefer to consider other possibilities first.
There MAY be the possibility it is a combination of normal and paranormal at work. Maybe your friend is looking out for your safety and trying to draw your attention the only way she can to problems she knows about. I've certainly read other accounts of deceased loved ones attempting to warn people of dangers they knew of, so it is a possibility.
I wish you the best of luck getting to the bottom of this. By your description your home sounds very nice aside from the knocking noise. I hope you get a satisfactory resolution soon to put your mind at ease. I wish you and your wife a Happy New Year, as well. A I give my respects to Rhonda, too, wherever she is and whatever she is doing.
