I’ve rented a lot of different apartments in my day. I’ve always worked all kinds of different jobs and I move around a lot. I guess you could say I’m the type of person who likes to get around to see places. I have been to a few other countries on some of my vacations too. I have even been in places where they don’t have any air conditioning. I know that’s something that is difficult for people to believe, but trust me, there are cultures that don’t believe in climate control. Most places have some form of heating systems though. A lot of people use traditional fireplaces or wood burning stoves. There are a lot of places where there is radiant heating as well which is awesome. Radiant heating is definitely an efficient way to provide the heating that you need. So recently, the apartment I was in was having a hard time with the cooling system. It actually reminded me of what it was like when I was in those countries that didn’t believe in that sort of thing. I called the property manager to take care of the A/C problem, but he 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 days, an HVAC contractor came to repair 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.
