My girlfriend and I live with our two dogs in a small two bedroom one bathroom duplex, it is perfect for our lifestyles and also includes a small yard outback, which is more than ideal, and we moved in together almost two years ago and have particularly 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 constantly emits weird fumes. We had to recently call our local Heating and A/C tech to assist us with a solution, even though both of us are on the coast, the temperature does occasionally get quite cold, especially in the evenings during all seasons, even summer. Our Heating and A/C tech came out almost immediately, and was able to diagnose the issue with our 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 A/C supplier then needed to update the front grate, as a large mess of melted plastic and fuzz was etched into it. Once she was done, we were good to go, and ended up using the gas furnace that evening, but when we switched it on, it turned on almost silently, with a comforting murmur emerging from the wall heater furnace every now and again. We are so grateful we got this fixed, and we will make sure to keep an eye on the dogs and their several toys from now on going forward.
