My girlfriend and I live with our two cats in a small two bedroom one bathroom duplex.
It is perfect for our lifestyle and also includes a small yard outback, which is more than ideal. We moved in together almost two years ago and have enjoyed how nice our neighbors are, and our only issue with the duplex is its only source of heat: the wall heater. The wall heating system operates mostly from our heating system in the garage, which is a good thing because our heating system is awesome, but it is also a bad thing because our wall heating system always emits different fumes. We had to recently call our local Heating and A/C tech to assist us with a solution, and even though we are on the coast, the temperature does occasionally get quite cold, especially in the days while in all seasons, even summer. Our Heating and A/C tech came out almost instantly, and was able to diagnose the issue with our wall heater. One of the cats had managed to get a furry toy stuck in the bottom of it, causing it to smoke slightly whenever we turned it on. The Heating and A/C professional then needed to replace the front grate, as a giant mess of melted plastic and fuzz was etched into it. Once he was done, we were good to go, and ended up using the heating system that night. When we switched it on, it turned on almost silently, with a comforting murmur emerging from the wall heating system every now and again. We are so grateful we got this fixed, and we will make sure to keep an eye on the cats and their numerous toys from now on going forward.
