#403 – Stifling

I’ve lived in a few apartment buildings where the landlord has to show up and flip a master switch to change the system from heat to cool. This always takes about 2 weeks longer than it would have if she lived there. My favorite apartment had the master switch in my unit. I was always pleased with my decisions.

    That should be a misdemeanor. Felony if you have to pay for electricity too.

    You should be able to lower the rent because of this. In that case I guess the landlord will show up much sooner

    I remember the barracks when I was in the military having a set date each year when the A/C or heat would be turned on. Annoyingly, I’d come home from a very hot day, walk into my room and put on sweats over my winter clothes because the rooms didn’t have individual temperature settings. Summer felt like winter in the rooms. Winter felt like Summer in the rooms.

      I agree. At least we get a whole lot of rain in October to make up for it.

    At work, the AC on one side was recently replaced, and works like a charm. The other side just now went the way of the dodo, and it’ll probably be until Fall or later to get a new system put in. But, it’s a small building, and I’m in the only business there, so it working out.

    In my office you need at the very least a sweater, in my case a fleece jacket, all summer long. It’s as cold inside in June as it is outside in November. There are people wtih spaceheaters going. My biggest treat of the day is walking outside to my ovenbaked car. 90+ degrees translates to 100+ for a car that’s been sitting still. So it only takes the few minutes of letting the top down on my convertible for me to thaw out.

    once, my AC broke and it was in the middle of that super-hot summer we got in 2010 (or was it 2011? I don’t keep track of this stuff). Anyway, it got so hot we just had to stay in a hotel for the night. I felt a little sorry for all the pets we had to leave behind in that awful heat, but the hotel didn’t allow pets.

    Poor doggy. Good thing that can’t really happen.
