When energy from someone or something has left an imprint or stamp in or on a location it is usually referred to as a residual haunting. This type of haunting will not yield much results in the way of active communication or direct engagement. What you may be seeing, hearing, or feeling is actually a scene from the past being played over and over. Usually the occurrence will take place around the same time, such as every night around 9pm, or once a week at 5pm. Often times a residual haunting will reoccur on the anniversary of an event. This type of haunting is not intelligent and the entity is not trying to communicate. You can often determine this type of haunting by keeping a journal of experiences and see if a repeating pattern occurs.
