My house is so quiet right now that it makes the entire house feel comfortable, and at first, I could not figure out why the house was so quiet.
- All of my children were still at home, so it isn’t some sort of empty nesting syndrome or anything like that! I also would like to point out that our house is not unusually loud, and we aren’t’ screaming or anything like that.
Actually, it was hard to notice that my house was quieter at first! That is because I never knew that we had so much background noise. The reason that our house is quieter is that the HVAC units in our house are not running. Both of us have a central a/c and a furnace in our house, and for the majority of the year, our HVAC units are running. Sure, our HVAC units are not obnoxiously loud or anything, but the fan is loud enough to be heard, and you do not notice the noise of the HVAC units when they are running, but when the HVAC units are not running for a long period of time, it feels like something is missing. There isn’t anything wrong with our HVAC units. The reason that it is so quiet is that the temperature outside right now is so perfect that you do not need an HVAC unit. It is the middle of the fall, and the temperature is great. We just turn on fans and open the window instead of keeping the thermostat on. It is kind of nice to not need to use the HVAC units, but it is too quiet at our house, and I know that we will have to turn the furnace on soon enough, and then, the noise levels in our house will return back to normal.
