Signs You're Living In A Haunted House, From Experts
There has been a recent spike in reported haunted houses in the past two years for the simple reason that due to the pandemic and people needing to stay home more often, they also started to notice paranormal sightings. CBC conducted an interview with Tenney, a paranormal researcher and former host of TV's Ghost Stalkers, who told them that he went from receiving two to five calls a month from people convinced their homes are haunted to now getting five to 10 calls a week.
Have you ever been home only to feel like you're not actually alone, or that you're being watched? There's a possibility you might be sharing your home with roommates from beyond the grave if you share any of the following experiences. The following signs are shared by people who have experienced them first handed, making them their own kind of experts.

The Sound Of Mysterious Voices

"My house was built in the 20s and several different families have lived here in the past. There was a night my now ex partner couldn't fall asleep so she sat up watching TV. She heard me calling for her from the dark hallway to our room and saw my shadow move. She quickly got up to check on me, but I was deep asleep and could not have possibly been calling for her from the doorway.
Another time I was alone, trying to take a mid-day nap, and heard footsteps move across the floor. I felt the bed shift behind me like someone was lying down, which was nice- until I remembered that my ex was out of town visiting family that weekend...." - atlGnomeThief / Reddit
One way to listen for abnormal sounds is to look for the frequency of the noises and the type of their sound. Unexplainable but re-occurring sounds are likely to belong to someone from the realm beyond.
Sudden Drops In Temperature

"I had fallen asleep at night with my fan running, and woke up freezing - I turned it off. Not long after, I woke up hot and turned it back on. This happened several times. The last time, I woke up hot once again, and the moment I opened my eyes, I heard the pull of my fan and looked up to see it slowly start speeding up." - coolicidal / Reddit
They say that it's possible that even if ghosts don't experience temperature themselves, they radiate a certain energy that changes the temperature in their environment.
A Smell Without A Source

"On the same day, every year, is the smell of something burning. It can be detected in only two specific but unrelated parts of the house. You can even define the limits of where you can smell it by walking around. After about two hours it goes away. Until the next year." - TigLyon / Reddit
Haunted houses often get "phantom smells" which are best described as very specific and sometimes strange smells that shouldn't exist in your home such as perfumes you don't own or cigars when you don't smoke.
The Phone Battery Is Always Dying

"I had friends over and told them the house was haunted. No one believe me so I asked the ghost to do anything to prove it was there. As soon as I asked, all the lights in the house began flickering for about a minute straight. This was the middle of the day, everyone witnessed it." - munchyz / Reddit
Ghosts often feed off of electricity because they absorb whatever kind of energy they find around them. In today's technologically advanced world, it's easiest for them to take advantage of electronics. This is why the TV suddenly shuts off or turns on and your batteries deplete faster.
Weird Sensation At The Back Of The Neck

"I read a story about a guy who had a woman spirit in his home. She would get jealous of the women he brought home. The spirit would lock his girlfriends in the bathroom and pull their hair and such. He said one night this spirit came into his room and laid in bed with him. He said he felt a coldness on his back and her cold breath on the back of his neck. He let it happen and then after that he noped out of that place." - halfbreed_prince / Reddit
Ghosts may sometimes be stuck to a home base but they're not stationary. They often tend to attach themselves to specific people, perhaps ones they find fascinating or hope to use as a vessel. Most often they'll do it by hanging on to the back of the neck.
Animals Act Strangely

"A lot of strange stuff happens. The animals (dog and parrots) will wake up from their naps and follow something with their heads just as they would follow me if I walk around." - suspiciouspalmtree / Reddit
Animals have a much wider range of perceptions than humans do. They will often be able to see, hear, and feel beyond our physical capacities. So if there's an additional entity in your home, they will be the first to notice.
Fulled Bodied Apparitions

"One guy from the house painting showed himself and he always looked confused. His upper body looked like a normal person's body but his legs were kind of like... Smokey. We later found out that two people, including a small child had died in that house in the 70,s.
There was no such thing as 'Ghost-Hunters' back in the early '90s which is when we lived there. We did have a guy come by and try to bless the house to see if he could convince the spirits to move on... But no such luck. As far as 'Evil"' goes... You know it when you sense it." - DoctorDeath
In rare instances, you won't need to guess if there's a spirit sharing your home because it will declare itself to you through a direct apparition.
Yet To Be Scientifically Proven

Keep in mind that CBC reports that there is no scientific evidence for the existence of ghosts. However, it's possible that some things just can't be explained by science. For a lot of these people they never believed in ghost house hauntings until they experienced it themselves.
Once enough strange events take place, it's hard to deny the possibility. There are thousands of documentaries, books, movies and interviews detailing events of haunted houses for a reason.
