CUORE is a ton-scale underground array of $988$ $\mathrm{TeO}_2$ crystals operated as bolometers at about $10 \: \mathrm{mK}$ in the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS). Its main scientific goal is searching for $0\nu\beta\beta$ decay of $^{130}\mathrm{Te}$. Each crystal is equipped with an NTD thermistor whose voltage is low-pass filtered, amplified and continuously digitized at a sampling frequency of $1 \: \mathrm{kHz}$. The standard data processing is based on building and applying an optimum filter on waveforms extracted with time windows of 10 s. The conflicting requirements of reducing the pile-up and enhancing the discrete Fourier Transform resolution forbid a significant enlargement of the time window. Both coherent and non-coherent noise components at low frequency were identified. A complete removal of such noise components would yield a resolution improvement of $\sim 18\%$. The most recent noise reduction techniques, including the implementation of an Infinite Impulse Response notch filter will be presented.
