Here's a simple thing to check before doing anything else. Are any of the vents blocked by the walls of your entertainment unit? Pull the PS3 out of wherever you keep it so it has lots of breathing room. See if that helps.
Also, my PS3 gets louder when it's hot. I think there's a fan that is turned on when the system is hot and helps cool it down again. Does yours get louder before it gets hot? If not it could be a sign that that fan might not be working.

Sounds like a fan died inside, needs to be serviced by Sony, they should do it for free. Google for Sony PS3 Customer Service phone number.
