My girlfriend and I live with our two dogs in a small two bedroom one bathroom duplex, and it is perfect for our lifestyle and also includes a small yard outback, which is more than ideal, the two of us moved in together almost three years ago and have really enjoyed how nice our neighbors are, our only issue with the duplex is its only source of heat: the wall heater.
The wall heater operates mostly from our furnace in the garage, which is a good thing because our furnace is awesome, but it is also a bad thing because our wall heater regularly emits odd odors.
We had to recently call our local Heating and Air Conditioning tech to assist us with a solution. Even though we are on the coast, the climate does occasionally get quite cold, especially in the nights during all seasons, even summer. Our Heating and Air Conditioning tech came out almost immediately, and was able to diagnose the issue with the wall heater. One of the dogs 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 Air Conditioning specialist then needed to update 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 wall heater that night. When we switched it on, it turned on almost silently, with a comforting murmur emerging from the wall heater every now and again. The two of us are so grateful we got this fixed, and we will absolutely make sure to keep an eye on the dogs and their numerous toys from now on going forward.
