Growing up in the country has really put me in tune to my senses. My natural ability of hearing is so acute that I can hear a pin drop in a crowd. I can separate the noise all around me, to where I can tune into just one sound. Sometimes it is a gift, but sometimes not so much. A couple months ago, I closed my eyes because I swore I could hear this odd noise coming from the air conditioning system.. My wife thought I was crazy, but I knew I wasn’t. They even jeered at me when I noticed the noise in the car, before anything went wrong. The air conditioner was something different. I kept trying to follow the noise, but it didn’t happen all the time. I was so upset that I called the HVAC company and asked them to come out and check the air conditioner for me. My wife told me that I was wasting our money, but I was positive there was a problem with the air conditioner. When the HVAC tech showed up, we went right out to the air conditioning unit. After ten minutes he looked at me and told me I have phenomenal hearing. He wouldn’t have been able to detect that hiss from where he was. He said there was a small break in the coolant line. He replaced the line and filled the coolant reservoir. He said it could have been serious if it had been left go any longer. I guess my hearing really does pay off.
