I have a relative that cannot hear no matter how close they are or how loudly you speak. It’s not that they are too old or have an actual hearing problem; it’s more like they are never actually listening. They are the type of person that is constantly asking you to repeat yourself. I get very annoyed with this to the point that I avoid talking to them at family gatherings because I can’t stand repeating myself. Sadly this winter I discovered that I had become the exact person that I dislike. When my out of date furnace turned on for the first time this winter season it was so loud that I could hardly hear from one side of the room to the other. My daughter asked me a question and without even thinking I asked her to repeat herself. The furnace was so loud it was disrupting our day-to-day lives. Finally I decided to do something about and called my local HVAC provider to have a technician come out and look at my existing furnace and suggest a new setup. After a quick look at my old furnace the technician said it was only a matter of time until it broke. He also said that the loud noise while it was on was a result of the furnace being really inefficient and it was probably costing me more money. Happily they will be installing a new HVAC unit in my home shortly. I can’t wait to be able to carry on a conversation even while the heat is on.
