I’ve rented a lot of peculiar apartments in my day. I’ve regularly worked all kinds of peculiar jobs and I transfer around a lot. I guess you could say I’m the type of woman who likes to get around to see locales. I have been to a few other countries on some of my getaways too. I have even been in locales where they don’t have any a/c. I know that’s something that is difficult for people to believe, however trust me, there are cultures that don’t think in temperature control. Most locales have some form of heating systems though, a lot of people use traditional fireplaces or wood burning stoves. There are a lot of locales where there is radiant heating as well which is awesome! Radiant heating is absolutely an efficient way to supply the heating that you need. So recently, the condo I was in was having a difficult time with the cooling system. It particularly reminded me of what it was love when I was in those countries that didn’t think in that sort of thing. I called the property manager to take care of the A/C problem, although she never came to my apartment. All I could do was turn on a fan and wait it out through the heat. I called the next day and the day after that and I still didn’t have anybody come out. Eventually I gave up calling and finally after about 7 afternoons, an HVAC company came to maintenance the A/C machine. I was so thankful to have the A/C back that I almost didn’t mind how inconvenient the delay was with the repair.
