A portable space heater is enough for me.

A portable space heater is enough for me.

I have been living in the same apartment building for almost five years now.

Every year, we end up with a couple of weeks where we don’t have heat.

It is usually right after Christmas and we all think the landlord uses our rent to buy Christmas presents. Even though we don’t have heat, there have been few people who have moved out of their apartments. We love living here. The landlord is quick to make repairs, and he is always there if we have a question or complaint. A bunch of us were having problems with our hot water. He had few complaints, and they were minor, but he still came to the building to talk to us. He soon figured out that there was something wrong with just one part of the hot water system. We had a couple of new tenants move in last fall. When winter arrived, they were pitching a fit about the furnace not working properly. They were calling the landlord several times a day and threatening not to pay their rent. They also threatened to call City Hall and file a formal complaint about there not being any heat. There was a complete investigation into the complaint, and some city employees were asking questions. When they came to my apartment, they wanted to know if I had any problems with the heat. I told them that once in a while; it wasn’t as warm as I like it, but I have a small space heater and it is perfect for keeping my apartment warm. They dropped the charges against the landlord.
