#7 of 8 Front end noise

I have a 2007 Escape - very pleased with car for first 10K miles then loud noise started under hood. Noise starts as soon as engine switched on and continues as I drive; it does modulate a little at speed and changes tone somewhat at gear shifts (automatic). First impression was aerodynamic noise from air filter - not so, with hood raised the noise comes from right front area, there are no handling problems and no unusual tire wear. Is it drive belt noise? Is there a sound insulation package available that might mitigate this distraction?
Otherwise car performs well and MPG is pretty good at about 21 around town and about 25 on the highway.

I had to upgrade my tires to fix this. The rear tires were out of alignment and when i rotated them it causes all of them to get noisy. started about 15K miles
