Default problem with loud high pitched screech

I do not know what is going on. It seems to only happen at night. One time
it happened at 3PM and its getting worse. Its not happening about every 3-10
minutes. There is a loud high pitched screech that seems to come from the
wall near my bathroom. its hard to tell.

i thought it was the pipes so i turned off the main water valve and this did
not improve anything. I do not know why it doesn't happen during the day.
The screech lasts about 1 second, but recurs.

any idea?

Washer in the fill line and valve of your toilet. The flapper is
probably leaking a tiny bit and the toilet needs to refill every once in
awhile, your 3-10 minutes. Start replacing parts in the fill line back
to the wall if need be.

Could it be a pump or fan motor in your heating system?
