I hadn’t realized how freezing it had gotten outside! After a long afternoon of skiing at my favorite resort, I drove back to the AirBnB I was renting to get some much-needed shut-eye before my next ski session tomorrow.
- As I exited the car as well as walked toward the front steps, I felt the icy wind on my exposed face, but I was glad I went to the cabin when I did! Now to soak up some delicious heated air in the cabin I had rented, however perhaps I’d even consider taking a hot bath to ease my sore muscles! When I opened the door, I was surprised that it wasn’t warmer inside.
In fact, it was almost as freezing as the air outside. I reached down to place a hand against the baseboard heaters, as well as didn’t suppose any warmth. Perplexed, I found a thermostat on the wall, as well as cranked it up. I waited a few minutes, and then nothing seemed to change. I searched for signs of a furnace, however didn’t see any vents in the floors or the ceiling no matter where I looked. I did the next-best thing by looking around for a space heater. It couldn’t substitute a fully-functioning furnace, baseboard heaters, or a heated floor system, however beggars can’t be choosers, as my options were definitely slim. I found a small one hiding in a linen closet, as well as clogged it in as central a point in the cabin as I could find. I didn’t know the heating as well as the A/C system wasn’t truly working! I double-checked the rental listing, as well as saw my screw-up: the cabin listed that it had a central air conditioner, however next to a little flame icon, the listing clearly said, “No heat.” No wonder I had gotten such a fantastic deal! Next time, I resolved to read the fantastic print.
