After moving out from a European country to a very cold Northern state, I could not understand the way people in this section of the world spend so much funds and energy on heating systems. The place I live, radiant heating is utilized by most everyone. The homes inside my country almost always come with heated floors to counter all the frosty temperatures outside where I’m from. Plus, the radiant flooring is actually surprisingly energy efficient, without consuming your natural resources or putting out toxins into our weather conditions regularly. Meaning radiant heat leaves air intact for the next generation and where I come from, that is important to my people. Then I get to this strange land, to discover electric heaters, central heating, furnaces and boilers are apparently the norm. Occasionally I find a strange house with the fireplace roaring. I like the sound of a crackling fireplace, but I really could do without worrying about the super noisy central heating unit I’ve been given in my new home. Every time the unit kicks in during the night, I wake up very startled. I’m sure the fan blades are rusted for the reason that the HVAC equipment squeaks when it shuts on and again when it reduces temps and shuts off. I miss out on the quiet, invisible comfort from radiant flooring I used to benefit from. And after experiencing my first utility bill the other day, I miss the low heating bills I was so accustomed to getting, too. I have been told of a recommended heating repair company, and called them in hopes they can hush my HVAC system. They will be sending a heating professional out a few weeks. I suppose till then, I will just have to handle a noisy heater.
