The heater needs a new filter
After the barrage of hurricanes that came several years ago, our town had barely any legs to rest on anymore. Many of the life-long natives decided to move away from the area, & any potential current citizens were scared off by the inclement weather. Our economy suffered greatly for over a year, & in that time I had to try & make the most of nothing! There was only one heating, ventilation & air conditioner company in town after that terrible hurricane season, & they were tasked with helping every single citizen rebuild their homes – & subsequently, rebuilding their heating & a/cs, however until the HVAC service company could see myself and others (which wasn’t going to be for at least several weeks), I had to make due with basic equipment. I used ceiling fans in our home to help circulate the cool air around, & I also made sure to rely on the stack effect to pull as much hot air out of our home as I could. Thankfully, I had windows in our house that could be opened from the top & the bottom, which allowed myself and others to create several chances at each window. The several chances made it so that hot air would be pulled outside, which in turn caused drawback air pressure inside & lured chilly outdoor air into the house. It was a natural, passive air conditioner plan for our house, & it worked surprisingly well! Between this & the ceiling fans spinning in each room, I was able to make due without a functional heating & air conditioner plan in our house for several weeks. Once the HVAC service company came to our house & helped to install central heating & air conditioner, I was relieved to no longer rely on such an old-fashioned way to cool our home. The small energy costs were nice for the time being, but it came at the cost of enjoyable air quality – & that made it all not worthwhile.
