    In a furnished house, there are numerous objects to deflect and absorb the sound waves. In an empty house, you have only the floor and ceiling, walls and doors to perform those jobs. Sound waves are, therefore, free to travel all around the room until they bump into something such as your ear.

    Because an empty house contains no carpets and other floor-coverings to muffle footsteps, and no curtains, other hangings, or furniture to deaden echoes.
