The Sound Of Heat

The Sound Of Heat

Heat in Delaware County PAIn the heart of winter we all become intimately acquainted with the warmth given off by the heat source in our homes, be it a fireplace, radiators, forced air vents or floor radiant heat (to name a few).  We become aware of the costs to keep the fires burning, so to speak, if we are paying the bills, and we become familiar with the rhythm of the particular heat delivery system in our home as the temperatures outside go way down in the winter months. 

Each source of heat has a particular sound when the furnace kicks on to heat up the air or the water needed to heat the house at a higher temperature.  Then once the air or water is heated there are other sounds that are associated with the heated air or water being pumped through the ductwork or air vents on forced air systems and through the pipes and radiators on water systems. There are also the sounds of wood and coal burning in fireplaces as well as gas fires dancing all aglow.

Register In Delaware County PAAs this winter continues to bring on the freezing cold weather, I cannot help but listen to the sounds of the heating system in my house and remember the sounds of my parents home of my youth in contrast.  In my house, I hear the "clang clang" of the pipes and radiators as they expand when the heated water is being forced through the pipes and then the "clang clang" in contrast as the pipes contract as the lower setting for the sleeping hours begin.  As a child in my parents' house, I remember hearing the furnace turn on and then a short time later the sound of the forced air coming through the registers in the walls as the heated air was being delivered to keep the house warm.

Whatever your heating source may be, may you enjoy the sound of the heat being delivered in your home as you stay warm and toasty.
