My little sister is scared of the heater

During the day we never have any problems with the thermostat.

  • My sister and I live with my aunt ever since our parents passed away.

This is the first winter we have been without them and it’s sad at times. We miss them very much and we talk about them often. It’s just awful that this will be the first holiday without them as well. My aunt does a great job at trying her best to take care of us and she knows our sorrows. She shares them as well since my dad was her brother. Regardless at night things get a little hard for her. She is only 3 years old and things like shadows or my aunt dropping something freaks my sister out. Recently, the heater that kicks on every night because of how cold it is she cries and wakes up in the middle of the night shivering and crawls into bed with me. I can’t do much but tell her it’s going to be ok and I’m here for her. I have talked to my aunt the last few days about how restless my sister has been with the heater kicking on late at night. It scares her so I asked if there was anything she could do. She wasn’t sure but she said she will call the HVAC company to ask if they can send out an HVAC tech to take a look at the heating and cooling system. Maybe the HVAC expert can come over and figure something out? Nights have been long for everyone and hopefully, an HVAC technician can help with the noise.
