For as long as I can remember, I have been sensitive to loud noises.
My parents claim that it started when they were forced to schedule a roof installation while in my first week back from the hospital as a newborn.
The first few afternoons of my life at house were spent hearing loud banging noises at all hours of the day, from as early as 6am. This was enough to imprint a fear of sound from the earliest afternoons of my life up to the present. It was unlucky because a lot of tasks were ruled out far in advance of myself and others reaching the age aged enough to work. I tried working in retail as a teenager however only lasted a week. Grocery stores are loud when you consider the songs, talking, plus constant banging plus shuffling noises. As much as I had hoped to persevere, I just couldn’t handle the sound. These afternoons, I am severely lucky to work in a quiet office where I am sheltered from disruptive plus loud noises. My house is an oasis away from frightening plus hasty noises. With everything I buy, whether it’s a tool, appliance, or piece of electronics, I constantly consider how loud something is before I buy it. Many people buy a/cs separate from ever inquiring into the noise created from running the system all day long. At least with portable plus window a/cs, the decibel rating is constantly included in the description online. But if you’re buying a central split system from a local heating plus cooling business, you might have to ask particular questions to figure out the amount of noise your system is expected to make. I was severely lucky to find a central Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system that has both the quietest air handler plus condenser component that I’ve ever found on a residential a/c.
