The heating system in our house is an older one, and a lot of people think that it should probably be replaced.
I think that’s because it sounds so loud when it’s running. However, to me, the sound of the heating system running is very soothing and I love it. You know how a lot of people like the sound of rain drumming on a roof when they are sleeping? That’s how our overly loud heating system sounds to me when I am sleeping during the winter months. Of course, no one else in our house feels that way besides me. Everyone else thinks that it’s just an annoying roaring sound whenever the heating system kicks on during the night. I will admit that it’s a little bit loud when it first comes on, but after you get over the initial shock, the roar is very soothing. It’s almost like you’re standing next to a roaring fireplace or something like that. My husband says that it’s ridiculous because your furnace is not supposed to be as loud as a truck on the highway. He says it’s supposed to be background noise in your house, not the first thing that you notice when it’s running. I guess that he has a point, but when he called to make an appointment with our HVAC company to come and fix the loud furnace, I was a little bit upset. I have to admit that I just don’t want the furnace to be quieter. I would be fine with it if it stayed this loud forever.
