You can’t risk one of the cows or horses breaking a space heater and starting a fire, you need something tougher
I have been big into self-medication since high school. In college I started seeing a therapist, who put me on mood stabilizers. These things always helped to take the edge off, but never made me actually feel calm or happy. I was running out of options, and desperate to turn myself around, so I decided to move away from the city and start over in the countryside. I wasn’t sure how I would make a living in a farming country, but much to my surprise there was a strong need for heating systems repair in the rural areas. It turns out that very few of the residences out here use central HVAC systems. Instead, the majority of homes use the small, cheap air conditioners they can mount on a window sill. When one of those AC units dies, they just go to Walmart and get a new one. Honestly I can’t fault them for taking the cheap route, we don’t get a lot of weather hot enough to justify getting a central HVAC system. Heating systems are a whole other matter, because those are essential for the keeping of animals. Almost every farm here has livestock, and during the brutal winter snowstorms, those livestock need heating systems to keep them alive. These heating systems don’t need to be particularly powerful, but they do need to be strong and resilient. You can’t risk one of the cows or horses breaking a space heater and starting a fire, you need something tougher. Heating systems for barns and animal enclosures has become my new speciality.
