Day 82: Turn on the heat
November 24, 2010 § 3 Comments
And so it begins.
Believe it or not, I never had to turn the heat on in our old apartment. We had a basement unit next to the water heater room, which kept it nice and toasty year-round. It sucked during the summer when the inside temperature reached 87 degrees (that was a high), but was great during the winter. However, I don’t think that’s going to be the case this year.
For some reason the air conditioning unit in our current apartment was placed right above the heater, which was a very bad idea because it melted a huge chunk of the plastic.
Does anyone know whether a baseboard heater is supposed to actually shoot out hot air or just get really really really hot? I don’t know if it’s broken or if that is just how it is supposed to work.
